Town of Oyster Bay receiver James Stefanich announced that property owners who missed the August 10 deadline for payment of their general property tax may avoid any additional penalties beyond the standard late fee of two percent if the payment is postmarked by August 31.
“Late payers should immediately contact the Receiver’s office at 624-6400 if they did not receive a second notification with a delinquent tax bill,” Stefanich stated in a press release. “Payments postmarked after August 31st cannot be accepted by the Town since the collection warrant will have expired. Those payments must be sent to the Nassau County Treasurer at 1 West Street, Mineola, New York 11501.”
Stefanich continued, “Failure to pay late taxes before the collection warrant expires will result in a delinquent tax lien proceeding with the possibility of the lien being sold the following February. Continued failure to pay all taxes levied against the property could result in your loss of the property.”
Nassau County will be mailing notices in September to all property owners with taxes in arrears.
