The amount of people allowed at one time in the lobby of the city hall building is 10.
The Internal Revenue Service expects about 150 million returns nationwide from individuals this year. As of the last count, it had received almost 139 million, this news organization previously reported. That’s down about 6 million — or 5.3% when compared to a similar period last year.
In Springfield, its income tax division estimated that about 65% to 70% of residents have already filed their taxes, according Beckdahl
In addition to filing tax returns in person, residents can also mail their returns to the city’s income tax division, using the address for city hall. However, those letters must be postmarked for July 15 by the United States Postal Service, Beckdahl added.

Those returns can also be delivered to a drop box, usually designated for utility payments, located on South Fountain Avenue near the city hall building.
Taxpayers can prepare or file their tax return electronically if eligible through Tax Connect, with a link located on the city's website springfieldohio.gov/government/finance/taxes.
Taxpayers must file or seek an extension by the new deadline or face a penalty. You can file a federal extension by Wednesday that will be honored by the city. Those who have filed for an extension will have until Oct. 15 to file their taxes, Beckdahl said.
Those who have additional questions are asked to call the city’s income tax division at 937-324-7357.
