Village Taxes

Village Tax Year: June 1 - May 31

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.

No. Payments can be paid by check, money order or cash only.

The village does not accept partial payments. The bill must be paid in one full payment.

No, payments may be mailed to the Village of Millbrook, 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 (35 Merrit Ave) that we check every weekday. You can leave your payment in there during non business hours.

Any changes in address or updates to bank or escrow information must be made in writing to:

Assessor's Office
10 Reservoir Drive
PO Box 667
Millbrook, NY 12545
