Town and County Taxes
Town and County Tax Bills will be mailed out on or before December 31st each year.

For property owners whose taxes are held in escrow, bills are forwarded directly to appropriate lending institutions.

We have a drop box that is available 24 hours a day to submit your payment. Place your check/money order payment in an envelope with your phone number listed. NO CASH accepted. The drop box is located in the front vestibule of Town Hall-1000 Ridge Road. Please be sure to include your payment coupon to ensure proper processing.
Payments placed in the drop box after 4:30 pm are posted as received the next day. Please pay careful attention to this as deadlines approach
In-Person at the Town Hall
Payments are received in person between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm at the Webster Town Hall, 1000 Ridge Road, in the Town Clerk's Office. Please bring both pages of your bill with you and your check should be made payable to "Dorothy M. Maguire, Receiver of Taxes". Forms of payment for taxes include cash, personal check, certified or cashier's check, and money order. We cannot accept credit or debit cards.
Having both pages of your bill with you when you come in will assist us in expediting your payment shortens the wait time for others.
Please note, M & T Bank is no longer accepting payments at their facility.
If you wish to pay with a credit card or electronic check, you may do so on Monroe County's website using the "View/Pay Taxes Online" via www.monroecounty.gov. The payment portal is linked to the tax system, so your payment will be posted immediately. A fee will apply.

- You may make a payment at this point, however, please note there are fees applied when making online payments through the website.
Online Bill Pay directly through your bank IS NOT RECOMMENDED
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, and we strongly advise against it.
This type of payment generates a check, and mailing envelopes are not stamped with a US Postmark. Often, they arrive after the due date and additional interest will be applied, regardless of the date printed on the check.
