REDUCED PENALTIES FOR LATE TAX PAYMENTS APPROVED BY BOARD OF LEGISLATORS---town, county, fire district taxes (paid districts) due April 30th


 The Westchester County Board of Legislators approved legislation tonight  that will authorize towns to reduce the penalties they collect  for taxes. If you pay your taxes by April 30th there is no penalty. If you pay  May 1 to May 31 the penalty is  0.5%, not  2%. It reduces late-payment penalties  for taxes paid from June 1 to July 15 to 1% from 5%.. This was a compromise that the Board of Legislators and Westchester Town Supervisors Association agreed to. 

Towns are required by law to pay the county 100% of the taxes we collect whether we collect them or not.  And, the law requires the towns to pay the taxes the entire tax bill owed by certain dates.
