TAKE FURTHER NOTICE: Taxes may be paid on or before January 31, 2013 without charge or interest. On all such taxes remaining unpaid after said January 31, 2013, a penalty of one percentum will be added for the balance of the first month (February) and an additional one percentum added for each month or fraction thereof thereafter until June 1, 2013 when the return of unpaid taxes is made by the Town Clerk to the Ulster Country Department of Finance, pursuant to law. Also, a $20.00 charge will be imposed by the collector for all returned checks in addition to tax and interest amount.


TAKE FURTHER NOTICE: Article X Section 987 of the New York State Real Property Tax Law mandates a notice be sent to delinquent taxpayers not later than 85 days after the January interest free period with a mandatory $2 fee. This must be included in the payment plus the interest for that month or the payment will be returned to the taxpayer for the correct amount.


INSTALLMENT PAYMENTS: The first and second installments (1/2 of tax) can be paid without interest up to, and including, January 31, 2013.  After that date, installments (1/2 of tax) must include interest at the rate of one percentum for each month, or fraction hereof, until June 1, 2013, at which time the return of unpaid taxes is made by the Town Clerk to the Ulster County Department of Finance.
