The district has subscribed to Tax Collection services at Tompkins-Seneca-Tioga (TST) BOCES since July 2019. The 2022-23 tax collection will begin Sept. 1, 2022, with a penalty-free period through Sept. 30, 2022, and a two percent penalty period through Oct. 31, 2022.
All 2022-23 school tax bills will be mailed directly to taxpayers’ mailing addresses on file with county real property offices. Taxpayers who have an escrow account with a mortgage company or bank will receive their tax bills for informational purposes only. Mortgage companies and banks will receive tax information directly from the Tax Collector. No actions need to be taken by taxpayers who have escrow accounts.
Taxpayers who own multiple properties in the district will receive a tax bill for each property separately since bills are no longer sorted manually by mailing address. In-person or mail-in payments are not accepted at the district office. In-person payments are not accepted at TST BOCES offices. Taxpayers should follow instructions on the tax bills for payment information.
All school tax-related questions should be directed to the Tax Collector at:
Julie Kephart, Tax Collector
Taxpayers can request a receipt by checking the “Check for receipt” box on the payment stub. If requested, receipts will be mailed to taxpayers within a month after payment is received. Taxpayers can view updated payment status on www.taxlookup.net once payment is posted to the taxpayer’s account, which usually happens within four business days of receipt of the payment.
“E-check” payment option is available again this year. Taxpayers can input checking account information and make payments through www.taxlookup.net. A service fee of $1.50 will be charged. However, payment will be posted to the account immediately and taxpayers can print out a receipt for records in real-time.
Please note, that the credit card service fee is displayed on taxlookup.net. Once the “Continue to Payment” button is clicked, the MuniciPay website will appear. Click the “Pay with E-Check” tab on the right side of the screen, and the service fee will change to $1.50. Tax bills and receipts from the 16-17 school year can be found online at www.taxlookup.net. 2022-23 school tax bills will be available online by Sept. 1, 2022.
