How to Submit a Claim

The City of Ocala is mailing checks.

Commencing early in July 2022, the City is mailing refund checks to all Class Members, except those Class Members with an undeliverable address.

The City of Ocala (the “City”) imposed the illegal tax on its in-city utility customers from February 20, 2010, through July 21, 2020. Customers who paid the tax are the “Class Members”.

If you qualify as a Class Member and you have not received your check by the end of July, or if you recently moved to a new mailing address, you should submit a Claim Form.
