Executive order does not allow for prepayment of school taxes

Please note that the New Lebanon Central School District cannot accommodate pre-payment of school taxes for federal tax purposes. Payment of 2017-18 school taxes was due in October. Per NYS law, our district cannot provide school tax bills for the 2018-19 school year until after the school budget has been adopted (budget vote is May 15, 2018) and the subsequent tax warrant has been issued. While Governor Cuomo’s recent Executive Order No. 172 gives counties and towns the ability to collect their 2018 property tax payments by the end of 2017, it does not authorize school districts like ours to collect the 2018-19 school taxes.
