Supervisor Bill Reilich and Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon Announce Extended Hours for Tax Collection

Supervisor Bill Reilich and Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon are pleased to announce that they will be extending business hours for tax collection purposes on Monday, February 12, 2018. Since the last day to pay Town, County and Fire taxes without any interest charges is February 10, 2018, which falls on a Saturday (a non-business day), an extension is authorized or required to be granted to the next business day. Our usual hours are 9:00am – 5:00pm, but because we anticipate there may be a heavier volume of residents coming in we will be offering extended hours. Therefore, the Greece Town Hall Tax Receiver’s Office will be open from 7:30am – 7:00 pm on Monday, February 12, 2018 to assist our residences. Additionally, the post mark date for those residents choosing to mail in their tax payment is also February 12, 2018.

“We are happy to extend our regular business hours in an effort to assist our residents in making their tax payments ahead of this latest deadline. After February 12th, a 1.5% interest charge will be assessed (required by State Tax Law) for any full or partial payment that is received for 2018 taxes” said Supervisor Reilich and Andrew Conlon. “Customer service is always a top priority and we are pleased to be able to offer these extended hours”.
