Interest & Penalties

Payment Due Date Information
All tax payments are due within the month specified. Payments received (United States Postmark) after the last collection day of the specified month will be subject to interest and penalties from the first due date.

Late Payments
City and County late tax payments are subject to interest charges of 2% per month, or any part thereof, from the first due date.

Interest Charges
City School District late tax payments are subject to interest charges of 2% per month, or any part thereof, from the first due date up until May 20. Payments made after May 20 are subject to an additional 5% penalty at time of payment.

*Please note that under New York State law, we cannot waive penalties or interest on overdue or late tax payments, unless the Governor has issued an Executive Order and/or special legislation has been passed by the State Legislature. Your tax payments must be received or postmarked by the United States Postal Service (postmarks produced by home/office postage machines are not sufficient) on or before the due date to avoid penalties and interest. Due dates that fall on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday are automatically extended to the next business day. Postdated checks cannot be applied to taxes due, and will be returned to the issuer, which may result in late payment penalties.

Tax Bills & Delinquencies
Tax bills must be paid in full, including all interest and penalties due. Partial payments cannot be accepted. New York State Law requires that current tax payments must be paid before any delinquent tax payments can be accepted.
