Convenient Options For Payment Of School Taxes

Clavin Offers Convenient Options For Payment Of School Taxes

Receiver of Taxes Donald Clavin reminds residents to take advantage of the convenient payment options his office offers as the deadline for paying the second half 2007-2008 school tax approaches. Taxpayers who prefer to make payments in person can avail themselves of satellite offices, the mobile tax office and the new EZ-Pay drive thru payment window located behind the town receiver's office in Hempstead. In addition, tax bills can be paid by credit card or e-check, online or via telephone. Tax payments received or postmarked by May 12 will be penalty-free, as the May 10 deadline falls on a Saturday.

Clavin continues his office policy of extending office hours during peak collection times at the main tax office located at 200 North Franklin Street in Hempstead. Hours of operation will be 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12. The fully staffed main office can provide taxpayers with assistance regarding account inquiries and accepts all forms of payment.

Satellite offices established at Rock Hall Museum (located at 199 Broadway in Lawrence) and Levittown Hall (located at 201 Levittown Parkway in Hicksville) will be open to receive tax payments (checks and money orders only) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12.

The mobile tax office will visit the following locations from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. as follows:

Monday, May 5- Merrick Senior Center, 2550 Clubhouse Road, Merrick

Wednesday, May 7- Town Parking Lot O-3, Davison Avenue, Oceanside (directly across from Oceanside Library)

Thursday, May 8- Elmont Memorial Library, 700 Hempstead Turnpike, Elmont

Friday, May 9- Franklin Square Senior Center, 1182 Martha Place, Franklin Square

The E-Z Pay drive thru payment window, located behind the tax office at 200 North Franklin Street (follow the signs on the corner of Bedell Street and North Franklin Street), will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12. Only checks and money order payments can be accepted at the E-Z Pay drive thru payment window. In order to take advantage of this convenient facility, taxpayers must bring their tax stub.

Residents who would like to pay via credit card or e-check may log onto the town's website at www.TOH.LI and follow links to "Online Tax Payments," or call Official Payments Corporation toll-free at (877) 306-6056. A convenience fee of 2.5% of the total tax payment will be incurred for credit card payments. A flat fee of $2 will be charged for electronic check payments. Hempstead Town receives no portion of these fees.

"From bringing town government to local neighborhoods to supplying residents with beneficial information that can help reduce their tax burden, Supervisor Murray and I are committed to assisting taxpayers in every possible manner," stated Clavin.

When making payment in person, residents should bring in the entire tax bill. Tax stubs should not be detached from the bill. For further information visit the town's website at www.TOH.LI or contact the Office of Receiver of Taxes at (516)538-1500.
