Reduced Penalties for Late Tax Payments

Last night, the Westchester County Board of Legislators approved legislation authorizing Towns to reduce penalties for late fees assessed on the 2020 Town and County tax bills. The due date for the 2020 Town and County tax bill remains unchanged: April 30, 2020. If your payment is received by the Town on or before April 30, 2020, or bears a United States Postal Service postmark of April 30 or before, it is a timely payment and no penalty will be assessed.

Tax Bills received between May 1 and May 30, or received bearing a United States Postal Service post mark between May 1 and May 30, will be assessed a penalty of 0.5%. This is a reduction from the 2% penalty otherwise imposed by law. The legislation further reduces tax penalties for late payments received between June 1 to July 15, or bearing a United States Postal Service post mark between June 1 and July 15, to 1%. This is a reduction from the 5% penalty currently charged for payments received during this time.

This compromise measure ensured across the board relief to all tax payers without proof of hardship while balancing the Towns’ fiscal obligations to the County which require each Town to pay the County 100% of its share of taxes regardless of the amount actually collected by each municipality.
