MEDIA CONTACTS: Gordon Tepper, Rebecca Cheng, Matthew Leonenko and Michael Anderson | (516) 869-7794
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Receiver of Taxes Charles Berman remind residents that the last day to pay the 2020-2021 school taxes – second-half bill – without a penalty is Monday, May 10, 2021. Second-half of the 2020-2021 school tax payments must be postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service on or before May 10, 2021 to avoid penalty.
Online tax payment information is shown on the reverse side of your bill. Online payments may be made by check (ACH) or credit card at: northhempsteadny.gov/tax-payments. A $2.00 processing fee for online check payments will apply. If paying with an online check through your bank, please schedule the payment at least ten days prior to the deadline and be sure to include your account number (located in the upper right-hand corner of the tax bill), bill number and/or your section, block and lot.
The online credit card payment processing fee will remain at 2.35% of the tax amount per transaction. New York General Municipal Law requires people paying their property taxes by credit card to also pay the fees associated with the payment transaction. The Town receives no portion of the service fee – that fee is retained by the payment processing vendors. Accepted credit cards are American Express, Mastercard, Discover, or Visa.
Additionally, to adhere to social distancing requirements, there will be no in-person payments and no cash payments accepted. Community collection sites have been canceled for this period and the main office at 200 Plandome Road in Manhasset is closed to the general public. Payments can be made via U.S. Mail, online via the Receiver’s online payment portal or delivered in person to a drop box located in the vestibule of the Tax Office. Before dropping off payments, please ensure you have written your check, include your school tax bill number and/or section block and lot, and placed your remittance stub(s) in a sealed envelope.
Anyone making payments 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.
