[ARCHIVED] RITA File Extension

At the height of the tax season the Regional Income Tax Agency is facing the challenge
of unprecedented demand for filing services. The Agency has responded with
increases in Internet bandwidth and phone coverage which has improved the taxpayers’
access. Since midnight today, about 10,000 tax forms have been filed electronically;
starting at 8:00 a.m., over 200 phone calls have been answered each hour and over
100 taxpayers have been served hourly in person at RITA’s office locations. The
Agency is further continuing its efforts to expand access to meet this extraordinary
request for contact.

Additionally, forms have been made available to member municipalities for placement
on their municipal websites. For those who have been unable to connect with the
Agency, tax filings postmarked or electronically transmitted by Monday, April 21, by
12:00 midnight will not be assessed penalty or interest for late filing.
