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, t
he 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.
