Friendly reminder: First half of school taxes are due on Friday September 30th. Visit the tax department's web page to find out how you can pay on line or by credit card. The town of Greenburgh acts as a tax collector for the school districts. The town has no involvement in setting the tax rates of the schools. School budgets are approved by independent School Boards and the voters each spring. An interesting bit of information: The town is required by law to pay the school taxes owed whether taxpayers pay or not. So, if you don't pay your school taxes we have to give the schools 100% of the taxes owed to them. The town is able to put a lien on the property and we eventually get paid (with penalties and interest). The town is currently completing our reassessment. The bill you received earlier this month uses the old assessment numbers. The April tax bill will be the first time the new assessment numbers take effect.
