Can I pre-pay my taxes?

Due to the possible changes in the Federal Tax Law, the Village has received calls from residents regarding the prepayment of the 2018 Property Taxes. Under New York State Tax Law, the Village is not permitted to collect a prepayment of Taxes without a tax warrant. The warrant constitutes the mantle of authority for the tax collecting officer to receive the taxes. Therefore, the warrant must be regarded as the instrument which empowers the collecting officer to begin the collection. Collection authority cannot begin prior to the date of the warrant. We are not permitted to collect any prepayment of the Village Tax Bill which would be due by April 30th (the Village cannot generate tax bills without the Tax Warrant). Should you have any questions, feel free to contact the Village Clerk – Treasurer’s office at (914)777-7722.
