Receiver Pravato advises Town of Oyster Bay property owners who missed paying their 2020 General taxes by the August 10th deadline, they can still pay with the required 2% late payment penalty and avoid additional interest and fees.
“Supervisor Saladino and I advocated to the Governor for an extension of the second half General taxes so residents could pay until August 31st without penalty. Given the slowdown of the economy and the widespread power/internet outages it became nearly impossible for taxpayers to make payments. Unfortunately, this extension was not approved.”
Late payers should immediately contact the Receiver’s office at 624-6400, if they did not receive a second notification with a delinquent tax bill. Payments postmarked after August 31st cannot be accepted since the collection warrant will have expired. Those payments must be sent to the Nassau County Treasurer at 1 West Street, Mineola, New York 11501.
In September, the Nassau County Treasurer will be mailing notices to all property owners with taxes in arrears. Receiver Pravato advises homeowners who fall under those circumstances to contact the Nassau County Treasurer at 571-2090 to determine the amount due. They may also visit the Treasurer’s office at 1 West Street, Mineola.
Receiver Pravato noted, “Taxpayers in the Town of Oyster Bay are already paying some of the highest school property taxes in the nation, and I want to make sure that our residents do not pay more out of pocket than they have to.”
