Town, County and Special District taxes are due by April 30th, 2020 without penalty. If possible, payment should be made by logging on to the Town’s website at Greenburghny.com.

No, the time to pay Town, County and Special District taxes that are due by April 30, 2020 has not been extended because of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, Westchester County officials, pursuant to an Executive Order by the Governor, have established a Taxpayer Hardship Program which allows the Town to waive late payment penalties up until July 15, 2020 for taxpayers qualifying for hardship who pay the taxes after April 30, 2020 and reduce late payment penalties to .5% through May 30th and 1% through July 15th for non-hardship qualifying taxpayers who pay the taxes after April 30, 2020.
Qualifications differ depending whether a taxpayer is a residential property owner, a landlord owning six units or less, or business owner and is subject to certain income requirements. Hardship Request Forms which must be certified by the property owner can be accessed from the Town’s website at Greenburghny.com.
