Convenient Payment of General Taxes

Clavin Offers Convenient Options for Payment of General Taxes

Receiver of Taxes Don Clavin reminds residents to take advantage of a variety of payment options as the deadline for paying the second half 2008 general taxes approaches. Taxpayers who prefer to make payments in person can avail themselves of satellite offices, the mobile tax office and the 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 August 11 will be penalty-free, as the August 10 deadline falls on a Sunday.    

"My office offers residents the highest level of service with extended hours of operation and multiple locations to pay their tax bills," said Clavin. "Residents who prefer to pay their tax bills in person may do so at the main office and the EZ-Pay drive thru payment window in Hempstead or at one of our satellite offices or mobile town hall locations."

Clavin has extended 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 August 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 11. When making payment in person, residents should bring in the entire tax bill. Tax stubs should not be detached from the bill. "Our fully staffed main office can assist taxpayers with account inquiries and all forms of payment," Clavin said.

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 August 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 11. 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 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 1-877-306-6056. 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.
"Our mobile town hall and satellite offices bring town government to local neighborhoods," remarked Clavin. "This is especially convenient for residents who have limited time or ability to travel to the main tax office and desire to make their tax payments in person by check or money order."  

Satellite offices at Rock Hall Museum (located at 199 Broadway in Lawrence) and Levittown Hall (located at 201 Levittown Parkway in Hicksville) will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on August 5, 6, 7, 8 and 11. The Mobile Tax Office will visit the following locations from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. as follows:

Monday, August 4- Merrick Senior Center, 2550 Clubhouse Rd., Merrick

Tuesday, August 5- Lido Beach Town Park, Lido Blvd., Lido Beach

Wednesday, August 6- Town Parking Lot O-3, Davison Ave., Oceanside (directly across from Oceanside Library)

Thursday, August 7- Elmont Memorial Library, 700 Hempstead Turnpike, Elmont

Friday, August 8- Franklin Square Senior Center, 1182 Martha Pl., Franklin Square

"Supervisor Murray and I remain committed to assisting taxpayers in every possible manner by offering top-notch services and supplying residents with beneficial information that can help reduce their tax burden," concluded Clavin.
