[ARCHIVED] Pre-Payment of Property Taxes

The Village Tax Collector has no authority to accept pre-payment of 2018/19 Village property taxes.

The Village has been advised directly by the Governor’s office that the recently-issued Executive Order does not apply to Villages with a June 1 fiscal year (such as Irvington). Therefore, the Village Tax Collector has no authority to accept pre-payment of 2018/19 Village property taxes.  Any payments sent to the Village will be returned.

The following is a synopsis of the four types of property taxes that are paid by residents of the Village of Irvington:

1) Village taxes – As guided directly by the Governor’s office, the Executive Order does not apply to Villages with June 1 fiscal years.  Thus, there is no ability to issue a warrant with an adopted budget and no ability to collect 2018/19 property taxes.

2) School taxes – Similar to Village taxes, there is no ability for the School district to have a voter approved budget in time to issue a warrant. Residents should be reminded that they can pay (and have always had the ability to pay) their second half 2017-18 school tax by December 31 (normally due in January).

That leaves only the Town and County with calendar year, approved budgets that COULD be pre-paid.

3) County taxes – The latest information available is that the County does not intend to issue a warrant to any of the Towns in Westchester, so Greenburgh has announced that they are unable to accept pre-payment of County taxes.

4) Town taxes – Greenburgh has announced that they are collecting Town and Fire District taxes on a pre-payment basis.  This is typically a relatively small portion of a Village resident's total tax bill (maybe 5% or less). Contact the Greenburgh Tax Receiver for details on how to pre-pay the 2018 Town taxes.
