Frequently Asked Questions

I did not receive a tax bill, or I received it late, do I still have to pay a penalty? YES. The failure to mail a statement or the failure of a property owner to receive a bill does not affect the validity of the taxes or interest prescribed by law (NYS Tax Law Section 922). Neither the tax collector nor any other official has the authority to waive statutory penalty charges.

Do you accept payment with credit cards? No. Payments can be paid by check or cash only.

Can I pay my taxes in installments? The village does not accept partial payments. The bill must be paid in one full payment.

Do I have to pay in person? No, payments may be mailed to the Tax Office. A US Postal Service postmark is used to determine the date the payment was made. We recommend that if you are waiting to the last day to pay your taxes, that you see the postal clerk affix the postmark. A postage machine, such as Pitney Bowes, does not count as a US Postal Service postmark. For your convenience, we have a locked mailbox to the left of the door at the Village Hall that we check every weekday. You can leave you payment in there during non business hours.

How do I have a copy of my tax bill sent to another party? If you are a property owner 65 years or older or have a disability you may complete the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance Form RP-923 to have a copy of your bill or notice of unpaid taxes sent to a third party. Request for a duplicate tax bill

The Board of Assessment granted a deduction in my assessment. Now what? The new assessed value should be first applied on the school tax bill. If the new assessment hasn’t been applied to the bill, please contact the Assessor’s Office at 845-677-8321. You will be required to complete an App for Corrected Tax Roll.
