Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich and Town of Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon are pleased to announce an additional service available for Town of Greece residents. Residents may now pay taxes via credit card at the Tax Counter located in Greece Town Hall. The Town of Greece is one of the first towns in Monroe County to offer this service to residents.
With school tax season upon us, residents now have the option to pay their taxes via credit card. School tax season began September 1st, however because of the holiday, today is the first day to actually make the payment in person. Supervisor Reilich chose to implement this service at this time because the school tax is the largest portion of your property tax bill and he thought this would offer another option for Greece residents.
Going forward, residents will have the option to pay all of their taxes using the Town of Greece new credit card machines. Please note that there is a 3% processing charge used for all credit card transactions. This charge is the fee assessed by the bank fee and we must pass it along to residents who choose to use the credit card machine.
The new credit card machine service comes on the heels of yet another service the Town of Greece has installed for tax-paying residents. Supervisor Bill Reilich and Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon would like to remind residents that they also have the option to use the night drop box to drop off their school tax checks. The Town of Greece offers this service on behalf of Greece Residents who reside in the Greece, Hilton, and Spencerport School Districts. The drop box is located outside the Service Mall area of Greece Town Hall on the right side of the doors. The purpose of this drop box is to provide residents with a fast and secure method of paying their seasonal taxes. The only form of payment that will be accepted in the drop box must be in check form. All deposits will be collected at 9am every business day by Town of Greece Tax Department Staff and the work will be processed on the previous day’s business date. Please be sure to include a payment stub with your check in order to receive a receipt. In order to ensure resident safety, a camera has been placed in the area to monitor activity. This drop box is for payment of seasonal tax only. Please note that this drop box is a service in addition to the tax services already provided by the Town of Greece. You may still pay your taxes in person or through the mail if you choose.
“This year we have established new services for our tax-paying residents” said Supervisor Reilich and Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon in a joint statement. “We are constantly looking for new and improved ways to assist residents, and are pleased to offer yet another convenient method of paying taxes”.
