The Receiver of Taxes collects the Town & County Property Taxes in January. The bills are mailed in early January. The tax bill covers the period of January 1st – December 31st. Payments can be made upon receipt of bill through January 31st, there is a 1% penalty thru February 28th. If they are paid after February 28th, there is a 2% penalty thru March 31st. After March 31st, the unpaid bills are turned over to the Rockland County Commissioner of Finance.
The Property Tax Bill contains levies for the Town, County, Fire District, and any special districts. In addition, if Village and School bills are unpaid, they will be re-levied on the Property Tax Bill. If a previous owner was receiving an exemption, a pro-rate amount will also appear in the bill which covers the time period that the new property owner enjoyed a previous owner’s exemption to which they were not entitled. Please contact this office is there are any questions regarding the amounts due.
