The First Half 2021 General tax collection deadline has been extended from February 10th to March 12th. The final day to pay the first half without penalty is now March 12th. The Governor granted an extension after receiving a request from Receiver Pravato.
During this public health crisis, the Tax Office has been fully operational but has suspended in office interactions. There are new outdoor walk up windows at Town Hall North in Oyster Bay and Town Hall South in Massapequa and are open daily from 9:00 am to 4:45 pm to assist residents and accept payments with a check or money order.
For more information please call the Tax Office at 516-624-6400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Receiver of Taxes Jeffrey P. Pravato
This office handles the billing of property taxes on more than 100,000 parcels of land in the Town and acts as a collection agency for the State (Supreme Court), County, Town, special district and school district taxes based upon budgets adopted by the respective municipal authorities.
In addition to the billing and receiving, the Receiver of Taxes Office has the responsibility of maintaining records and maps of each parcel of land in the Town. To maintain efficiency, the Receiver of Taxes Office has expanded its computer capability. Although most bills are sent to mortgage holding institutions, those residents who receive tax bills directly have noticed that the computer is providing a far greater amount of detailed information about each tax.
In addition, to paying online, Town taxpayers now have the ability to pay their taxes via credit and debit cards (MasterCard, VISA, American Express and Discover) in our Oyster Bay tax office. Please note there is a fee involved. New York State law mandated that the Town of Oyster Bay receives no portion of the service fee – this fee is retained by the payment processing vendors enabling the transaction.

The Office of Receiver of Taxes supplies information with regard to property tax exemptions for veterans, senior citizens and clergy.
The Receiver of Taxes is elected every four years.
