Look for the two red boxes
Tax returns and tax payments can be placed in the secure red drop box located on the east side of City Hall. For the public’s convenience, the city has added a second secure red mailbox at Mingo Park to drop off tax returns and payments. Both boxes will be checked multiple times each day by staff.
