Some villages will not allow residents to pre-pay taxes before new tax bill goes into effect

Unlike cities and towns, villages have different fiscal year dates


GARDEN CITY — With Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Executive Order that allows New Yorkers to pre-pay their taxes for 2018, village officials have reportedly been receiving calls from residents asking if they can also take advantage before the new tax bill goes into effect. However, for some villages in Nassau County, the answer is no.

The reason for this is that, unlike many of the towns and cities in the county, some of the villages have different fiscal year dates. What this means is that the budgets are not yet set, and neither are the taxes.

Garden City posted on its village website that despite the Executive Order:

"… only affects Villages that have a tax year that begins on January 1st. Garden City's tax year begins on June 1st of the year and tax warrants are not effective until June 1st."

Other villages like Rockville Centre, and Sea Cliff, posted their own notices as well.
