Paying your taxes

Many homeowners have their property taxes paid from an escrow account through their mortgage company. It is vitally important that you maintain close scrutiny of your property tax payment history even if you do not pay your taxes directly. You and/or your lender are not exempt from the various penalties, fees, and proceedings that become relevant if an error results in the late or non-payment of your property taxes.

 

Partial payments may be made on your taxes. The first payment must be paid in the penalty-free period and we no longer require 50% of the balance. You can make up to four payments for town and county property taxes. Some school taxes accept partial payments others may not—you will need to contact us to be sure.​

Search Onondaga County property database and view your tax payments received.

Pay online

 

Online payment notes:

 

  • When paying online, payment is not immediate. The company cuts a check payable to the Receiver of Taxes and mails it to the tax office. Yes, snail mail.

  • ​There is no direct deposit of payment. Payment envelopes do not get a U.S. Postal Service postmark, used as date of receipt (Real Property Tax Law 925). Many arrive at the tax office after the due date and must be returned to the property owners with penalties. This makes for unhappy taxpayers.

  • Please contact your bank and verify policy and timing for such payments. We do not want you to be uniformed. If you are going to use this service, you must be sure to have the payment to us by the due date.​
