Receiver of Taxes
Payment of Taxes
The annual Village taxes are due in full by July 1st without penalty. According to Real Property Tax Law section 922, payment of taxes on a timely basis is the responsibility of the property owner even if a tax bill has not been received! The property owner will be liable for all penalties and interest on late payments. Kindly send the stub portion of the bill with your payment. Post-dated checks will not be accepted.
The 2021/2022 taxes for June 1, 2021 to May 31, 2022 are available for payment on line by credit card. Tax bills will be mailed out via USPS by May 15, 2021. The taxes are due in full by July 1, 2021 without penalty. We do not accept partial payments.
Most mortgages include an escrow account for payment of taxes. If a property owner satisfies a mortgage during the year, the property owner should check with the Tax Receiver to determine of the tax was paid by the bank. The bank will not necessarily forward a tax bill to the property owner after the mortgage has been satisfied. The owner will be liable for the penalty and interest even if the bank did not forward a bill.
For taxes remaining unpaid after July 1st, add 5% for the first month and 1% for each additional month thereafter.
Payment of tax sent in the mail can only be recorded as received effective by the date postmarked from a U.S. Post Office. A metered postmark is not acceptable! It is suggested that a taxpayer paying by mail near a deadline date send payment by registered mail or certified mail return requested, or have the envelope hand stamped at the local post office window.
