From Supervisor Gary Zuckerman Concerning Pre-Payment Of 2018 Taxes
On Friday, December 22, 2017, Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order No. 172-2017, that suspended certain provisions of the New York Real Property Tax Law and the Westchester County Tax Law regarding the collection of real property taxes.
The Executive Order was issued in response to federal tax law changes that reduce the amount of state and local tax deductions allowable in 2018. As made clear in its preamble, the intent of the Executive Order is to facilitate the pre-payment of real property taxes – including some that would ordinarily be due in 2018 – before the end of this year. The Town of Rye intends to take the steps permitted under existing law and the Executive Order to allow its property owners to pre-pay their 2018 property taxes as follows:
The Tax Receiver will accept the second half of currently levied 2017-18 school taxes (normally due January 31, 2018) before December 31, 2017, in accordance with standing practice and procedure. You may locate your bill on the Town website, http://townofryeny.com.
Please note that payment of school taxes to be levied in September 2018 will not be accepted before the end of this year. These taxes relate to a future fiscal year that runs from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019 and for which a budget has not been adopted nor a tax warrant issued by the respective school districts.
Village of Rye Brook: The Tax Receiver will accept the second installment of currently levied 2017-18 Village taxes (normally due February 28, 2018) before December 31, 2017, in accordance with standing practice and procedure. You may locate your bill on the Town website, http://townofryeny.com.
Village of Port Chester: Village of Port Chester taxes are due prior to December 31, 2017.
Village of Mamaroneck-Rye Neck: Village taxes for Rye Neck, Village of Mamaroneck, are collected by the Village of Mamaroneck, not the Town of Rye.
Due to the timing of the Executive Order, the Town will not be able to issue physical tax bills/statements. However, the Tax Warrant was issued by the Supervisor as approved previously by the Town Council. The amount of the tax levy for 2018 is the same as for 2017, so the tax bill should be the same except for possible differences in assessed value, year to year. In order to take advantage of the Executive Order, property owners may tender the same amount of Town taxes that were paid in April 2017.

NOTE: Any discrepancy in the amount of Town prepaid tax payments will be adjusted in or about April 2018.
The Executive Order provided that "Local tax collectors are now authorized and directed to accept partial payments of warranted taxes from property owners until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, December 31, 2017" (emphasis supplied).
The office of the County Executive has now issued a statement that the 2018 County Tax Warrant cannot be issued this year. Thus, the Town will not be able to accept prepayment of County taxes. The Town will continue to monitor this situation and issue additional guidance as soon as it receives further information and instruction.
Under the Executive Order, the aforesaid taxes may be paid and accepted in the following manners:
• In person at Town Hall (222 Grace Church Street, Port Chester, NY 10573) until the close of business (4:00 p.m.) on Friday, December 29, 2017;
• By mail (payments to be sent to the Tax Receiver at 222 Grace Church Street, Port Chester, NY 10573) provided they are postmarked as of December 31, 2017;
• By credit card or ACH at the Town website: http://townofryeny.com.
Questions may be directed to the Receiver of Taxes at (914) 939-3558.
If you escrow taxes through a financial institution or mortgage servicer, you are encouraged to contact your lender to make arrangements relative to payment of these taxes as provided in the Executive Order.
Disclaimer: Although the Town of Rye is proceeding with tax collection as permitted in the Executive Order, it offers no opinion concerning the ultimate deductibility of any taxes paid for federal tax purposes. Property owners should consult with their own tax professionals for guidance with regard to the federal tax implications associated with these payments.
This is a rapidly-evolving situation, and the Town will make every effort to update its residents
Announcement Of Governor Cuomo's Executive Order Regarding Early Tax Payments
News: Important Information about Early Payment of 2018 Taxes
Executive Order Authorizes Localities to Issue Warrants For the Collection of Early Tax Payments. Executive Order Allows Taxpayers to Make Partial Property Tax Payments.
Governor Directs State Department of Taxation and Finance to Work With Localities to Facilitate Early Tax Collection
Action Helps New Yorkers Avoid Devastating Impact of the $10,000 Cap on SALT Deductions in the GOP Tax Bill
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today issued an emergency Executive Order to help protect property owners in New York from the devastating impact of the GOP tax bill. This order authorizes local governments to immediately issue tax warrants for the collection of 2018 property tax payments and allows property owners to pay at least a portion of their bill before the end of the year and under the current tax construct. The Governor directed the Department of Taxation and Finance to work with local governments to facilitate early tax collection.
The federal tax plan, signed into law today, caps the deductibility of state and local taxes at $10,000, effectively raising property taxes and reducing home values in New York and in states across the country.
"As Washington wages an all-out assault on this state and this nation, I have authorized local governments to allow property owners to pay part or all of their taxes early," Governor Cuomo said. "New York has made unprecedented progress reducing the burden of taxes on our middle-class families, and we will not allow this attack to roll back all that we have achieved. This Executive Order will allow property owners to deduct either part or the full amount of their payment from their federal taxes before the GOP tax bill goes into effect."
Governor Cuomo signed Executive Order #172 today, which includes two actions:
Authorizes Local Officials to Immediately Levy Taxes
The Governor authorized local governments to immediately issue warrants to levy property taxes by the end of the year. Officials should issue warrants for the collection of taxes and deliver them to the local tax collector immediately, and no later than 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, December 28, 2017.
This will allow New Yorkers to pay their property taxes for 2018 in the 2017 calendar year and allow localities to accept advance payment so that property owners can deduct the full amount of their payment at the federal level.
Allows Taxpayers to Make Partial Payments Early
The EO will also suspend local laws limiting the ability of taxpayers to make partial payment of property taxes until the end of the year. Since many taxpayers do not yet know the exact amount of their bill, this will allow for a portion of taxes to be paid early and under the current federal tax law.
Each local tax collector is now authorized and directed to accept partial payments of warranted taxes from property owners until the close of business on Friday, December 29, 2017. Online payments can be made until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, December 31, 2017, and payments made by mail that are postmarked on or before December 31, 2017 are authorized.
New York State Budget Director Robert Mujica said, "For those local government and school districts able to issue their warrants before the end of the year, we encourage them to do so. We understand that for some, it would not be feasible nor practical."
New York State Association of Counties Executive Director Stephen J. Acquario said,"We commend Governor Andrew M. Cuomo for using his executive authority to provide options for homeowners in New York to prepay their 2018 property taxes. Due to the end of year time frame, this action is necessary to provide local authority to receive the taxes for payment in 2017."
New York State Conference of Mayors Executive Director Peter A. Baynes said, "As the capping of the SALT deduction has become a painful reality for New York, our city and village leaders have been doing all they can legally to allow full or partial prepayment of 2018 property taxes in 2017. Fortunately, today's decisive action by Governor Cuomo will assist our members as they help their residents deal with the negative financial impacts federal tax reform will have on millions of New Yorkers."
