What We Do

A Report For Filing Your IncomeTax Return
On the left side of this page, there is a link to the IRS payment report. This will give you the instructions for a printout of all the taxes that you paid in calendar year 2020 that you can use in order to fill out your state and/or federal tax returns. The bill numbers will start with the numerical prefix 2019 because that is the current grand list billing year.
