Water and Tax Billing Information
The Village tax bills are mailed by May 20th and have a due date of June 1st but are payable, without penalty, by July 1st (if July 1st falls on a weekend the due date becomes the following Monday). Unpaid taxes will be subject to interest and penalties as follows, 5% for the first month after due date and 1% for each additional month.
You are responsible for the prompt payment of your tax bill, if you do not receive your bill by June 1st, you should contact village hall to find out the amount due.
Payments are considered on time if:
· Upon delivery to the Village the envelope is clearly postmarked (by the US Post Office or a courier service authorized by the US Secretary of the Treasury) on or before the due date.
· Walked into our offices by the due date
· Left in our drop box outside the Village Hall doors by the due date.
Payments received after the due date without a legible or authorized postmark, will be considered late and interest and penalties will be applied.
In accordance with Real Property Tax Law §1432, the village may not accept payment of less than the full amount of taxes and interest due.
All payments are to be made to the Village of Farmingdale at the Village Hall, 361 Main Street, Farmingdale, New York.
