School Taxes May Be Paid In Person or Online

Taxpayers in the Schalmont Central School District may pay school tax bills by dropping your payment in the mail slot at the District Office or you can pay them online here.  You can also view your tax bill online without having to make a payment, as well as find an assessed valuation, see any exemptions on the property and print a receipt.

Payments can be made in the secure, online payment feature by using your credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover) or electronic check (using your checking account number and routing number). There is a 2.5 percent fee to pay your bill online.

Please note: This service is available to those residing in the towns of Duanesburg, Princetown and Florida. The towns  of Guilderland and Rotterdam also provide a similar service for their taxpayers.

In-Person Collections

For individuals who would prefer not to use the online payment feature, payments may still be made by mail or in person by dropping them in the mail slot at the District Office at 4 Sabre Drive, Schenectady, NY 12306. Once your payment is processed we will send you a receipt.

Payments of checks or  money orders should be made payable to the Schalmont School Tax Collector.  Cash payments are not accepted. Please include a phone number with your payment

The mail slot is to the left of the District Office front doors. Payments made before 7:30 a.m. will be credited to the previous day’s business. Please make sure you have funds in your checking account when you make your payment. Return item fee is $20.

You do not have to notify your mortgage holder if you pay taxes through an escrow account. The process should be seamless and you should not have to make any adjustments. If you receive your bill in error please forward it to your mortgage holder.

If you have a question or problem, you should contact School Tax Collector Genienne Bakuzonis at 518-355-9200, ext. 4018.
