Property tax payment due date extended for Ulysses residents


first_img ULYSSES, N.Y. — The property tax payment due date has been extended for municipalities impacted by recent winter storms across New York. Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order Feb. 14 extending the due date for several counties and towns, including Ulysses in Tompkins County.The extension was granted to Cayuga, Chautauqua, Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties, as well as several towns outside of those including Ulysses. With the extension, Ulysses residents can pay their taxes without interest or penalty for an additional 21 days past the final date taxes were due, which was Jan. 31. So, residents can pay their 2019 town and county property taxes in full without a penalty through Thursday, Feb. 21, the Town of Ulysses said in a news release. Residents can also use the first installment payment option through Feb. 21.In a news release, Cuomo said the executive order was issued in response to requests by several municipalities who said around the time property taxes were due, residents were unable to make payments on time due to a disruption of public transportation, utility service, and postal operations. “With several recent winter storms impeding the ability of residents across the state to pay their property taxes on time, I am extending the due date for these payments to ensure New Yorkers are not penalized as a result of Mother Nature’s unpredictability,” Cuomo said in a statement. “Dealing with winter weather events is stressful enough, and residents in communities especially hard hit can rest assured they will not be further impacted by these storms.”Anyone that made a payment after the Jan. 31 deadline and included the penalty fee will be refunded. Refund checks will be mailed out within two weeks.Read the full news release from the Town of Ulysses below:The Town of Ulysses On Feb. 14, 2019, Governor Cuomo issued an executive order extending the property tax payment due date (originally Jan.31) in municipalities impacted by recent winter storms.
