Don’t forget. Your school taxes are due on Friday. Some people have contacted me worried because their mortgage company hasn’t paid the town the school taxes yet. Mortgage companies take the payments from the client’s account during the month that it is due. However, the mortgage companies do not send in the payments to the tax office until the last day they are due along with other tax payments. This arrangement is between the taxpayer and their mortgage company. We have no control over when the payment is delivered to the Receiver of Taxes office.
Town Hall will be open on Friday till 7 PM. The town has no control over school budgets which in most cases represent between 50% and 60% of your entire tax bill. The town of Greenburgh acts as a tax collector and we have to give the schools 100% of the taxes owed whether we collect them or not.
