Late filing and payment
Both your payment and return must be received in the Finance office by 5:00 p.m. on the last day of the month. If it is received after the due date for any reason, it is delinquent and you will be assessed a 10% penalty plus interest. If the due date falls on a weekend or City holiday, submit your form and payment in advance to avoid being late. If you mail your form and payment, it must arrive to Finance before the due date to be considered on time. A postmark is not considered the date of delivery.
