Please make sure your check is made out correctly, including pay to, date, and written and numerical amounts must match. Any checks incorrectly made out will be returned and may be subject to a penalty if received by the tax receiver after the penalty free period. We do not accept post dated checks, these may be subject to penalties. On payments made by check, change for less than $1 will not be returned.
If payment is made by mail, the United States Postal Service postmark (not a postage meter mark) is used as the payment date (RPTL §925). If there is no postmark, the date received will be used as the payment date.
If using an online banking service to pay your bill, please read your agreement as the bank may not mail your payment out for up to seven days after withdrawing money from your account. Remember, the payment date is considered to be the postmark date or received date if no postmark.
