General Information about Personal Tax Electronic Filing and Paying

Filing and paying taxes electronically is a fast growing alternative to mailing paper returns and payments. The Missouri Department of Revenue received more than 223,015 electronic payments in 2019.

Ridge’s two elementary campuses and one middle school sit along Chicago’s southern edge. Roughly two-thirds of its students come from low-income families, and a third are learning English as a second language.
