The Horseheads Central School District mails school tax bills annually at the end of August. School taxes are payable without penalty from September 1 to September 30. Click here for the legal notice regarding school taxes.
During tax collection, there are three ways to pay school taxes:
- By mail to Horseheads CSD Lockbox, PO Box 1077, Elmira, NY 14902
- In person at any Chemung Canal Trust Company location
- Online: Taxes are payable online September 1 through October 31.
Please note that taxes may not be paid at any school district building, including the business office or at district schools.
Make checks payable to the Horseheads CSD Tax Collector. Per New York State Real Property Tax Law, the US postmark – not the postage meter date or the date the payment was placed in the mail – is used as the date of receipt.
For taxes remaining unpaid after September 30, or with a postmark date after September 30, a 2% penalty will be added effective October 1 to 31. Per NYS Real Property Tax Law, the district cannot accept payments postmarked after October 31. At that time, unpaid taxes are sent to the Chemung County Treasurer’s Office with additional penalties. Taxes and penalties will be re-levied onto the town and county tax bills in January.
For tax questions prior to October 31, please call 607-739-5601, x4217. Thank you.
