As you may be aware the new federal tax laws may make it advantageous to pay your 2018 Town/County taxes in 2017. This is a decision you should discuss with your financial advisor. In order to facilitate this as Tax Collector, here are some instructions on how you can do this.
- Contact my office at (716)789-3445 x2 to find out what your tax amount is. If you are calling after hours, please leave a message with the SBL #(s) (i.e. 331.00-1-27) which can be found at the top right of a previous tax bill; or the name of the property owner listed on the bill and the address of the property location. Please leave your name and phone number and I will call you back with the bill number and tax amount(s) owed. We cannot take partial payment.
- Once you have the tax amount, write a check payable to: Town of North Harmony/Tax Collector, P.O. Box 167, Stow, NY 14785.
- Please include the bill number in the memo line on the check
- Have your mailing envelope USPS postmarked before 1/1/18, and purchase a Proof of Mailing Certificate (use the address as listed above). The proof of mailing certificate will be your proof to the IRS/Federal Gov’t. that the bill was paid in 2017.
Hopefully this information will be helpful to you as taxpayers. My office will be open Thursday 9:30 AM – 6:00 PM and Friday 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM, 12/28-29/17.
