The School tax receipts are being mailed. You should have a receipt no later than November 1, 2023.

The Receiver of Taxes is responsible for the collection of county, town and school taxes. Please be aware that taxes must be paid whether or not a property owner receives notification (New York State Real Property Law, Section 922). If you are a new property owner, please notify the Receiver of Taxes so that your tax bill can be sent to the proper place.

  • If you are requesting payment of taxes through your bank’s on-line system (e-check), it can take up to 5-7 business days before the Town receives the check. These payments usually do not bear U.S. postmarks and as a result, the day of receipt is the day of payment.  In order to avoid interest penalties, please leave sufficient time when processing a tax payment in this manner so that the check is received by the Town before the due date.

Partial Payments accepted in any amount, in person or by drop box ONLY.

Penalties are applied based on the late fee schedule located on the front of the tax bill. Penalties are assessed on outstanding balances after the due date and in accordance to the Erie County Tax Act and New York State Real Property Tax Law, Section 925. There is NO provision for the waiver of penalties.
