About Filing Your Income Taxes
Question: Why do I have to file a Village of Windham Income Tax Return?
Answer: Village Ordinance requires everyone 18 years of age and older, who resides within the Village limits, with or without income to file an income tax return. If you are on Social Security, disabled or retired, you should still file an income tax return. If you are running a business outside the Village limits and are performing a service within Village limits, you are required to file an income tax return.
Question: Can I file an extension like I do the Federal return?
Answer: Yes, you can fill out an Extension Form and mail or drop the completed form off at the Income Tax Department, but in order to be valid and acceptable, you must have filed a federal extention. Please take note: filing an extension is NOT an extension to pay the tax due, it is only an extension to file the return.
