Also, please be advised that there is a five business day penalty-free extension date for the payment of school taxes for property owners who have a Senior Citizen’s Exemption under Real Property Tax Law Section 467.  The last penalty-free date for payment of school taxes for those property owners who have a senior citizen’s exemption is October 12, 2017. 

 

The collection period with the two per cent (2%) penalty will conclude on November 6, 2017 and all unpaid tax records will be returned to the County Treasurer.  After that date, payment of school taxes can be made by contacting the County Commissioner of Finance.
