Athens City Income Tax
The Athens City Income Tax Department has entered into a contract with the City of Cleveland Central Collection Agency (CCA) to use federal income tax information to identify potential taxpayers for the City of Athens.  CCA has matched the Athens database against IRS records and will be mailing letters to taxpayers the week of December 27th, 2012.  The letters will be mailed in a green envelope and will be printed on CCA letterhead.  If you receive a letter, you will need to follow the directions and/or contact CCA with any questions.  The City of Athens does not have access to the IRS records and therefore, cannot answer any questions.  Please do not ignore this letter; this is a valid attempt to identify if you should be filing tax returns with the City of Athens Income Tax Department.  For more information visit our web site at
