Town Tax Office Temporarily Suspends In-Person ServicesResidents asked to pay taxes online or through the mail
North Hempstead, NY - Supervisor Judi Bosworth, Receiver of Taxes Charles Berman, and the Town Board recently announced that the Tax Office has temporarily suspended in-person services to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Residents are asked to make tax payments through the online payment system or through mail. Additionally, there will be no local community tax collection sites this Spring.
Residents may pay online (fees apply) by visiting: northhempsteadny.gov/tax-payments. Accepted forms of payment include electronic ACH check or American Express, Mastercard or Visa. New York State law mandates that the Town receives no portion of the service fee – the fee is retained by the payment processing vendors. The online credit card payment processing fee is 2.35% of the tax amount. The ACH check fee is $2.
Residents who are making payment by mail should include the remittance stub(s) with their check or money order in the return envelope. They are also asked to write their Bill Number(s) on the check(s), include the payment stub, and make checks payable to: Charles Berman, Receiver of Taxes and mail to the Receiver of Taxes at 200 Plandome Road, Manhasset, NY 11030.
The Town has also requested Governor Cuomo to extend the deadline to pay the 2nd Half 2019-2020 School property tax deadline past May 11 and are currently awaiting the decision.
If residents need to contact the Tax Office, they are encouraged to call 311 or (516) 869-6311 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, please visit northempsteadny.com/coronavirus.
