2021 Town and County Payment Options

Drop Box

We have a drop box that is available 24 hours a day to submit your payment by contactless means.  Place your check/money order (NO CASH) in an envelope with your phone number. The drop box is located in the front vestibule of Town Hall-1000 Ridge Road. Please be sure to include a payment stub and your phone number to ensure proper processing.  Payments received after 4:30 p.m. are considered received on the next business day.  

Mail in your payment

Make your check payable to "Dorothy M. Maguire, Rec. of Taxes" and PLEASE list your account number and phone number on your check - mail payment stub and payment to:

Receiver of Taxes
1000 Ridge Road
Webster, NY 14580

POSTMARKS: New York State Real Property Tax Laws govern tax collection. The United States Post Office Postmark date determines whether a payment is on time. Any payment postmarked on or before the due date will be considered on time. It is strongly suggested, if payment is mailed on the due date, to walk into the Post Office and have the date hand stamped by a Postal Employee.

METERED MAIL: Tax payments delivered by the U.S. Postal Service after the due date that do not contain an official U.S. Post Office Postmark but rather a “postage meter” mark are not considered timely; the received date will be used as the date of payment.

In-Person at the Town Hall

If you come into our Town Hall during normal business hours, please be advised that the number of residents is limited.

Only four visitors will be allowed in the foyer at any given time. Stickers have been placed on the floor to help indicate where residents should stand while remaining socially distanced 6 feet apart.

If you enter the Town Hall a screening process is in place.  All are requested to wear a mask and must be checked in.

When it is your turn, you will be directed to enter the Town Receiver’s Office to complete your transaction. Stickers have been placed on the floor indicating where each resident should stand and there are plexiglass partitions placed on the counter to further provide separation when paying at the counter.

At the Tax Receiver's Office counter, acceptable forms of payment for taxes include cash, personal check, certified or cashier's check, and money order.

Online Bill Pay directly through your bank

Most banks discourage the use of online banking for tax payments because they cannot guarantee your payment will be delivered to our office by the due date. If you utilize online banking, you do so at your own risk, but we advise against it. These bank payments generate a check and most times the envelopes these checks are sent in are not stamped with a US Post Mark. Often, they arrive after the due date and that is why Online Bill Pay is Not Recommended.
