School Tax Information
School Tax Bills
All tax bills are mailed on September 1st of each year. The District collects through September without penalty and continues to collect through the end of October with a 2% penalty. Any payments not received by the end of October are sent to the County for collection during the month of November with an additional 7% penalty. If the school tax and penalties are not paid to the county the bill and penalties are added to the taxpayers January property tax bill.
The District is not authorized to collect any payments after the end of October and is not authorized to waive any penalties.
In the future, if you do not receive your tax bill by September 15th, please call 518 233-6850 ext. 33408 for our tax office and request a new bill be mailed to you. The District is not in a position to be aware of an unreceived tax bill, therefore it is the responsibility of the taxpayer to request a new bill if one is not received.
Please remember that the school acts as the “collector” of the taxes. If you have a discrepancy on your bill that has to do with your assessment of property or exemptions, please contact your assessor’s office through your town or city hall. For unpaid taxes after October 31st, please contact your collector.
