The first-half 2014-2015 School Taxes are in the mail; they are due and payable without penalty until Nov. 10, 2014. Mailed payments must be postmarked by the US Postal Service on or before the last day to pay without penalty. By law, office postage meters are not official postmarks (NYSRPTL-Sec 925).
Although school taxes are collected by the Receiver of Taxes, payments you make in response to the school bill are forwarded to your local school district and local library district, if applicable, and do not fund the operation of town government. The factors that determine the amount of your school bill are beyond the control of the Town of North Hempstead. These factors are:
•The assessment on your home, which is determined by the Nassau County Department of Assessment.
•The budget and tax levy approved by voters and adopted by your local Board of Education.
•The percentage of your school district’s tax levy paid by property owners in your property tax class.
All property owners, except those whose taxes are paid through a mortgage escrow account, should receive a tax bill. If you misplaced your tax bill, please call 311 to request a duplicate. If calling from outside the Town of North Hempstead, please call (516) 869-6311. Please have your School District, Section, Block and Lot number available. When paying by mail, please include your remittance stub(s) with your check in the return envelope (previously provided). When paying in person, please bring your entire bill. This is the only School tax bill you will receive. PLEASE KEEP YOUR SECOND-HALF STUB IN A SAFE PLACE.
Please include your Bill Number(s) on your check and make checks payable to: CHARLES BERMAN, RECEIVER OF TAXES
