An agency that coordinates the filing of municipal taxes around Ohio has extended the deadline to file until Monday after unprecedented demand.
The Northeast Ohio Media Group reported Tuesday that several suburban Cleveland leaders expressed concern with the problems and said extending the deadline was the right thing to do.
The tax agency said it experienced an "unprecedented demand" for online services, including the electronic filing of municipal income taxes in dozens of communities across Ohio.
Steven Presley, treasurer of the tax agency's board, says the problem is so many people waited until the last minute to file.
