Receiver of Taxes
Receiver of Taxes DepartmentResponsibilities & Services
The Office of the Tax Receiver is not a policy making office. We do not determine tax rates. We are responsible for collecting all real property taxes levied by the town, county, and school districts.

Tax Year
The tax year begins on December 1 and ends on November 30 of the following year. Tax bills are distributed once a year around mid-December. They can be paid in total or in two installments.
  • 1st half: payable by January 10 without penalty
  • 2nd half: payable by May 31 without penalty

Note: There are no grace periods for these deadlines.

Methods of Payment
  • By Credit Card: For your convenience, you may now pay your taxes via our Internet based Payment System, by credit card, or by e-check. All major credit cards are accepted. Telephone payments can be made by calling (800) 577-6324 or by using this website. A service fee is charged to the taxpayer for this service.
  • By Mail: If you wish a receipt when paying by mail, you must include your entire current tax bill. If you do not send the entire bill your cancelled check will serve as your receipt. Please put your district, section, block, and lot numbers on your check to identify your parcel.
  • In Person: Bring the entire current bill to the Tax Receiver's Office at Town Hall. We accept checks (made payable to Deanna Varricchio, Receiver of Taxes) money orders, cash, or Discover credit card.
  • Partial Payments: A minimum payment of $200 may be made. Penalties will only be imposed on the remaining balance after the deadline.

Note: After May 31 of each year, all taxes are payable to the Suffolk County Treasurer who can be contact at (631) 852-3000. We cannot accept any payments at this office that are postmarked after May 31. The county charges a penalty of 5% and also interest of 5% from June 1 (increasing 1% each month thereafter) if taxes remain delinquent.
