Directions to find your tax bill: the eGov site allows you to view, print, and/or pay your Town tax bills. After clicking the above link to access eGov, you do not need to fill out all the requested info, just select the year and type of bill you want to see, and then enter your last name in the "owner name" box and run a search. Choose your property from the resulting list.
The Tax Office is responsible for the collection of School and Property taxes for approximately 15,900 parcels. All powers and duties of this office, as well as collection procedures, are statuary and defined in the New York State Real Property Tax Law.
I welcome any inquiries pertaining to collection policies as well as general tax information. We offer our assistance to residents, realtors, lending institutions, title companies, and other entities that may require tax information. The tax roll is available for public inspections.
The hours of the Tax office are Monday through Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm. During the months of January and September the office will be open from 8:30am to 6:30pm MONDAY’S ONLY. The office will be closed for lunch from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm from April 1 to August 31 ONLY.
There is also a convenient “drop box” located in Town Hall for tax payments during the collection periods.
Duties of the Office of the Receiver of Taxes:
The Town of Orangetown is a town of the first class. Collection officers in towns of the first class are known as Receiver of Taxes. This is an elected position. Before entering upon the duties of the office, it is required that all tax collecting officers take and subscribe the Constitutional Oath of Office. In addition, an official undertaking or bond, which guarantees the faithful performance of the office, must be executed and filed in the Town Clerk’s Office. Once the Receiver has taken the oath and executed the bond, he or she becomes the insurer and guarantor of all moneys, securities, papers and records that the law provides shall be in his custody.
