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 (located at the Town of Washington Town Hall) at 845-677-8321. You will be required to complete an App for Corrected Tax Roll.

Do I have to pay my taxes in person?

No. Payments may be mailed to:

Village Hall
PO Box 349
Millbrook, NY 12545

*** 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. ***

Can I pay my taxes in installments?

No. The village does not accept partial payments. The bill must be paid in one full payment.

Can I pay my tax bill with a credit card?

No. Payments can be paid by check or cash only.

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.
