4 Payment Plan (example) Bill # 000 $ 936.48 total is divided into 4 equal payments Jan payment is $234.12 penalty free. Feb payment is $241.14, including 1 % penalty of the balance. March is $ 243.48, including 2 % penalty of the balance. April is $ 241.14 including a 3% penalty on the balance. Once the Jan payment is received, Karen will send a receipt and a coupon sheet for Feb, March and April. Each is due by the last day of the month. There is a additional penalty if sent in late. Please send only the amount of the coupon. You may pay it off whenever you wish. Last 3 receipts will be sent when the final payment is made. Please contact Karen for the exact amount for Jan. payment, and any questions on this plan.

If you need to add or delete a name on you bill, or change your address, Karen has the form for that.

If you are using a bank or online service to pay your bill, it needs to have a US Postal Service date stamp on it. Many of these places do not have any thing on the outside of the envelope. If not, Karen goes payment wise by the day she receives it not when the check was dated. Keep in mind home generated computer stamps are not always US Postal Service date stamped.

If you do not receive your tax bill by the 7th or so of Jan, please call Karen, and she will check into it for you.

If you want a receipt mailed to you please, check the [ ] box on the tear off bottom of the bill.

On the front of your bill you will notice Apply for third party Notification by 11/01/2016 Under NY law, senior citizens and disabled home owners may designate an adult third party to receive a duplicate copy of real property tax bills, and notices, of unpaid taxes. The intent of the law is to eliminate unfortunate situations where these tax payers might otherwise lose their homes for nonpayment of taxes. Karen has the form for that.
