The first half of the school tax is due on September 30th of each year. Because September 30th falls on a weekend you will have until Monday, October 2nd to pay your school taxes (some extra time if you like to procrastinate!). Town Hall will remain open till 7 PM on Monday evening.
Don't forget! The town is independent of the school district. But-we act as a tax collector. In fact, if you don't pay the school tax bill the town sends the school district a check for the amount due. They get paid whether you pay your bill or not. The town collects the money from delinquent taxpayers eventually--with penalties authorized by state law.
The school tax bill is sent to residents in September. Because school taxes comprise of more than 50% of your entire tax bill the state law authorizes residents to pay half the bill in September and the other half in January.
The following is from the Receiver of Taxes website. Anne Povella is our Receiver (an elected position).
This office collects annually, over a quarter billion dollars for the County, Town, Fire districts and 10 School districts located in Greenburgh. It is the largest municipal collection agency in Westchester.
Please feel free to look over our website, for information that may be of importance to you.

ON-LINE TAX PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD
The Town of Greenburgh now has the ability to accept tax payments by credit cards via the telephone (1-800-272-9829) and internet.
Since the town cannot absorb the service fee charged by the credit card companies, (these companies will not allow us to pass this fee along to the public) an outside firm had to be retained. Please be aware that this firm charges a significant 'convenience fee' to process your tax payment.
Official Payments Corp. is the same company that is utilized by the IRS and several State tax collection agencies.
