Tuesday is the last day of the month. On Wednesday February 1st there is a 10% penalty imposed on taxpayers who paid the 2nd half of the school tax late. I have always felt that the penalty is excessive but this is the law in Westchester County. Every year some taxpayers pay their taxes a day or two late and still get charged the penalty. That's why I keep reminding taxpayers of their obligations. We have also put up signs around town reminding them that the school tax bills must be paid by the end of themonth.
If you want to pay your taxes in person stop by at Greenburgh Town Hall on Monday or Tuesday. The tax office is open till 5 PM on Monday and till 7 PM on Tuesday. We are giving out free REFLECTORS (see photo below) to those who stop by at Town Hall. Reflectors should be worn if you walk around town at night. Many motorists can't see pedestrians who wear dark clothing.
If you want to pay your taxes on line the link is below. If you pay by credit card there is a fee to cover costs. If you pay online using your checking account there is no fee.
The town has no control of school taxes. Each school district sets their own tax rates and approves their own budget. The town only acts as a tax collector for the school district.
