EXTENSION OF PAYMENT DEADLINES FOR PROPERTY TAXES AND OTHER LOCAL FEES/CHARGES - guidance provided by New York Conference Of Mayors (NYCOM)

Please take notice - to answer questions regarding village taxes (mailed out May 31, 2020) at this time, no extension is in place.

"Local governments do not have unilateral authority to extend the interest-free period with respect to the payment of property taxes. This may only be done pursuant to subdivision 2 of section 925-a of the Real Property Tax Law which provides that “during a state disaster emergency, the Governor may, by executive order issued upon the request of the chief executive officer of a county, city, town, village or school district in the affected area, extend by up to twenty-one days the final date for paying taxes without interest or penalty in such county, city, town, village or school district. If such an extension is granted, and any taxes are not paid by the final date so provided, those taxes shall be subject to the same interest and penalties that would have applied if no extension had been granted.” Additionally, the Governor has the authority, under his emergency powers, to unilaterally provide for such an extension of the interest-free period on a statewide basis. To date, he has taken no such action." - NYCOM
