Dinolfo Announces Extended Hours to Allow Early Property Tax Payments

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced extended hours for City residents to pay their 2018 town/county property tax bills early. The County Treasurer’s Office will be open on Saturday, December 30th from 9:00AM to 1:00PM in order to accommodate residents who wish to pay their property taxes early. Residents in the City of Rochester can make their payment in person at the County Office Building. Residents in surrounding communities should contact their town for more information.
Dinolfo previously announced that county/town tax bills would be prepared early and posted on Monroe County’s website, www.monroecounty.gov, no later than 9:00 A.M. on Friday, December 29, 2017.

“We have received many inquiries from residents who plan to pay their 2018 property taxes early due to recently-passed federal tax reform legislation,” said Dinolfo. “In response, we are not only expediting the posting of property tax bills on our website, but also extending hours and opening our Treasurer’s Office on Saturday to help taxpayers make their payment before the end of the business year. Property tax bills can also be paid easily online at www.monroecounty.gov.”
Under the newly passed federal tax plan, New Yorkers may benefit by paying their 2018 town/county taxes prior to January 1, 2018. Early payment of 2018 school tax bills is not permitted. Dinolfo encourages residents to consult a tax professional to discuss their own personal finance options before taking any action.
