Tax payment deadline extended

Due to a delay in mailing tax bills, the payment dates for 2019 Schalmont Tax Bills have been extended.

School tax collections will be from Sept. 7 through Oct. 7, 2019, without penalty. A 2% penalty will be added from Oct. 8 through Oct. 31, 2018.

Do not send payments after Oct. 31, 2018. They will be turned over to the county, and re-levied with your town and county taxes in January 2020, with an increased rate of interest.

Taxpayers in the Schalmont Central School District may pay school tax bills in person or online.  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 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.
