Receiver of Taxes Charles Berman reminds taxpayers that the last day to pay the Town of North Hempstead 2015-16 school taxes, first-half bill, without a penalty is Tuesday, Nov. 10. The U.S. Postal Service must postmark mailed payments on or before Nov. 10 to avoid a penalty. By law, office postage meters are not official postmarks.
