Pre-payment of Property Taxes
I know the changes in the new federal tax bill are a cause of great concern to residents, as well. We received many calls from residents interested in prepaying their taxes. We had extensive discussions with other municipal officials and our state representatives to determine if it was possible for our residents to prepay their 2018 Property Taxes. Initially, we determined that it was not legal or possible given the timing for completion of the Town tax warrant. However, Christmas weekend, the Governor signed an executive order allowing Town governments to issue and approve tax warrants and accept partial payment of taxes. Again, fortunately for residents, the Town administration and Town Board acted quickly and were able to create a mechanism for residents to pre-pay their 2018 Town and County taxes by the end of 2017. If you wish to prepay your Town and County tax or the second half of the 2017-18 School Taxes in 2017, be sure the Town of Mamaroneck Tax Receiver receives payment on or before December 31, 2017, or that the transmittal of payment is postmarked by the USPS on or before December 31, 2017. Should you have any questions, please refer to the Town website, www.townofmamaroneckny.org, for more details. .
