Receiver of Taxes

The Receiver of Taxes is responsible for the collection of county, town and school taxes. Please be aware that taxes must be paid whether or not property owner receives notification (New York State Real Property Law, section 922). If you are a new property owner, please notify the Receiver of Taxes so that your tax bill can be sent to the proper place.

Town Hall Open By Reservation ONLY

Town Hall will be open to the public, by reservation only, beginning Tuesday, September 8, 2020.  You can make a reservation up to seven days in advance with the Town Clear/Receiver of Taxes, the Assessor, Recreation and Parks, and the Building and Development Department.

2020-2021 School Tax Bills

2020-2021 School tax bills have been mailed. If you, as opposed to your bank, are responsible for the payment of your property taxes, including these school taxes, and have not received your tax bill, the please contact the Tax Office at 238-4773 or email Taxes@mynewcastle.org. The first half of the 2020-2021 school tax bill is due without penalty by Wednesday, September 30.

We encourage the public to use the drop box in the lobby of Town Hall as well as mailing their tax payments. Please make sure you see the post office affix a US post mark for proof of timely mailing. We remind our residents that the Tax office will hold post-dated checks. In order to take advantage of this option, simply mail in or leave payments in the first floor drop box with the date on or before September 30 that you want us to pay your bill and we will hold the payment for deposit on that date. We will send receipts for all tax payments and can email confirmations of receipt if requested. 

The Town also offers residents the ability to pay taxes on-line. There is no charge for using our on-line payment system to pay via ACH payment. Please note that our on-line system only allows you to pay on the date of the transaction and does not accommodate future payments. 

You may also use our on-line system to pay your tax bill by credit card. The credit card option charges a service fee. 

For further information call the tax office at 238-4773 or email your inquiry to Taxes@mynewcastle.org.
