School Taxes

Tax bills are mailed in early September, with payment due by Oct. 9 without penalty. After that date and until Nov. 2, a 2% penalty will be charged.

You can access your tax bill information online at http://tax.neric.org/Search.aspx?district=422001

Tax payments can no longer be made in person at the DCS Central Office. Payments must be mailed or paid online.

Pay by mail – check or money order

Tax bills may be paid by check (payable to: Duanesburg Central School Tax Collector) or money order, by mail. Please make check or money order payable to Duanesburg Central School District Tax Collector and mail with remittance stub to:

Duanesburg Central School District
Tax Processing Unit
133 School Drive
Delanson, NY 12053

For your convenience, a pre-addressed envelope is provided with your tax bill. The U.S. Postmark determines date of payment.

Pay Online – Third-Party Provider

Tax bills may be paid online by credit card or debit card through a third-party payment service. A service fee of 3.5 percent of the tax bill plus 50 cents or $2 plus 50 cents, whichever is more, is charged by the service and goes directly to the third-party service and not to DCS.

The third-party service also accepts e-checks and charges a fee of $4.95 for bills up to $2,499. For bills of $2,500 or more, a fee of $4.95 plus one-half percent of the total amount of the bill will be charged.
