Dinolfo Expedites Property Tax Bills to Allow Early Payment

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced that county/town tax bills will be prepared early and posted on Monroe County’s website, www.monroecounty.gov, no later than 9:00 A.M. on December 29, 2017 in order to allow residents to pay their 2018 tax bills on the last day of business in the year 2017.

Under the newly passed federal tax plan, New Yorkers may benefit by paying their 2018 town/county taxes prior to January 1, 2018. Dinolfo encourages residents to consult a tax professional to discuss their own personal finance options before taking any action.

“We have received many questions from residents about the possibility of paying their property taxes early as a result of recently-passed federal tax reform legislation,” said Dinolfo. “I am happy to say that Monroe County is expediting the posting of property tax bills on our website to help taxpayers make their payment before the end of the business year, if they choose. Residents in the City of Rochester can make their payment in person at the County Office Building and residents in our surrounding communities should contact their town for more information. Property tax bills can also be paid easily online at www.monroecounty.gov.”

Residents have the following options to pay their county/town tax bills:

Payments Made Via Cash, Check or Money Order
Residents outside the City of Rochester: Residents should contact their town in regards to tax payment location and hours of operation.

City of Rochester Residents: City of Rochester residents may pay their county taxes via check in person, at the County Treasurer’s Office, located at 39 West Main Street on December 29, 2017 anytime from 9AM to 5 PM.
