School Tax payments are accepted through November 30th;  after November 30th, any unpaid balances will be due to the Erie County Real Property Tax Services.

Partial Payment Exception – Williamsville School District is the only School District with restrictions for making partial payments.  Residence must make a payment of at least 50% or more of the balance due.
