Oyster Bay Receiver of Taxes James J. Stefanich wishes to notify town residents that the 2018 General Tax Collection Warrant has been closed, and all related records have been turned over to the Nassau County Treasurer.
The original warrant specified that $587,255,080.63 was to be collected to support Nassau County, Town of Oyster Bay, and special tax districts. Assessment reductions and tax cancellations amounted to $89,153.38 (0.015%). Nassau County’s portion was $278,499,350.36 (47%). The Town of Oyster Bay’s portion was $114,350,783.22 (20%), and the special tax district’s portion was $184,249,606.97 (32%).
A list of delinquent property payments was reported to the County Treasurer, amounting to $10,066,186.50 (1.7%).
Receiver Stefanich noted that property owners with delinquent taxes would be contacted by the Nassau County Treasurer’s office. Owners will be receiving letters specifying taxes owed along with applicable penalties and late payment fees.
The 2018-2019 School Tax levy bill printing will commence on October 1st, and mailing will start in early October. Receiver Stefanich asks property owners to be patient when calling the Tax Office for information on property taxes due to the usual high volume of calls received at the beginning of a new tax collection. Residents are requested to have the school district, section, block and lot numbers of the property in question available. This information is listed on the tax bill and on the property deed.
