The 1st half of the school property taxes is due on Friday, September 30th. The office will be open on Friday till 7 PM. The town is prohibited from collecting partial payments. However, we accept credit card payments. We also accept payments on line (www.greenburghny.com). You have till midnight on the 30th to pay the school taxes on line. The town acts as a collector of taxes for the school districts. We are required by law to pay the schools the taxes owed to them whether we (the town) collects the taxes from you or not. There are significant penalties for late payments --and the penalties cannot be waived. The school districts are independent of town government. Voters approve the school taxes every year.
NYS has been cutting back on the STAR program which helped property owners with their school tax bills.
