What happens if I haven't paid my 2023 Real Property Taxes?

If the taxes remain unpaid on November 1, 2023, we are required by law to record a "List of Delinquent Taxes" in the Office of the County Clerk. The recording of that list will create a Notice of Pendency against your parcel. Notices of delinquent properties will be published in the newspapers and on our website.

If the taxes remain unpaid on April 1, 2024, an additional charge of $150.00 for a title search will be added to the delinquent taxes and you will be required to pay the 2024 taxes before you can pay the 2022 taxes.

Please contact our office for the amount due if taxes are not yet paid. 

Continued failure to pay the outstanding taxes will result in the loss of the property.


What happens if I haven't paid my 2022 or 2021 Real Property Taxes?

Please contact our office for the amount due if taxes are not yet paid. 

According to NYS Real Property Tax Law, unpaid taxes must be paid in "reverse order." So the 2023 property taxes must be paid, then any 2022 property taxes, then any 2021 property taxes. These must all be paid prior to March 31, 2024.
