School Tax Information

The Town of Orangetown Tax Office collects School taxes for the Pearl River, South Orangetown, Nyack and Nanuet School Districts. 

The fiscal period for School taxes is July 1st to June 30th.  School tax bills are mailed in early September.  Their due date is September 30th, as specified on the bill.  After September 30th, a 5% penalty is due until the end of the collection, which is usually October 31st.  If ending date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a holiday, it goes to the next business day. 

All unpaid school bills are turned over to the Rockland County Commissioner of Finance in New City.  They may be paid at the County until the re-levy date.  After that date, all unpaid bills are levied on the following Property Tax Bill with a 7% penalty.
