Pravato Reminds Residents Second Half School Taxes Due

Pravato Reminds Residents Second Half School Taxes Due

Town of Oyster Bay Receiver of Taxes Jeffrey Pravato reminds residents that the Second Half of the 2023-2024 School Tax Levy is due on April 1st, but can be paid without penalty through May 10th.


“New York State Law allows my office to provide taxpayers with a 40-day penalty free period from the date the tax is due during which payment may be made without penalty,” Receiver Pravato explained. “After the 40 days, State Law requires a one percent penalty be added for each month the tax remains unpaid. So, make your payment before May 10th and don’t delay, and you will ensure you aren’t paying more out of pocket than you need to.”


The Tax Office is open in both Town Hall North, 74 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay, and Town Hall South, 977 Hicksville Road, Massapequa, from 9:00 am to 4:45 pm to assist residents and accept payments with a check, cash or credit card*.  On May 9th and 10th both offices will be open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.  When paying in person, residents are reminded to bring the entire tax bill.  There are also outdoor walkup windows, and drop boxes have been installed at both locations for residents to make payments when the Tax Office is closed.


Residents who prefer to mail in their payments, should send them to the Office of the Receiver of Taxes, 74 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay, N.Y. 11771-1539.  Please make your check payable to Jeffrey P. Pravato, Receiver of Taxes and indicate your property’s Section, Block and Lot and telephone number on the check.


Tax payments may also be made online through a link on our Town website,  Residents may view tax bills, print out a hard copy, or pay taxes with an ACH check payment for a fee of $1.75, or by credit card for a much higher fee* charged by the credit card companies.   *The Town of Oyster Bay receives no portion of this fee.


Residents may contact the Tax Office with any questions about their tax bill at (516) 624-6400 or email
