Do I need to file a return?

Consider these questions: 

  1. Are you a resident of Fairfield? 
  2. Are you 18 years or older? 
  3. Are you retired or disabled and without any earned income? 
  4. Are you self-employed and working in the City of Fairfield? 
  5. Do you have rental property located within the City of Fairfield? 
  6. Are you a business located in Fairfield or performing services within Fairfield? 

If you answered yes to any of the questions one through five, you need to file an individual return with the City of Fairfield. If you answered yes to question six, you need to file a Fairfield business return.
