Residents of the city of Cortland will have a little more time to pay their school district taxes this year.
The Cortland Enlarged City School District yesterday (August 5) announced a change in due dates for their annual tax collection.
Normally due in the month of August, first installments are now due no later than September 30, 2019, with the second due no later than February 28, 2020.
All residents will receive their tax bills in the mail by the beginning of September.
Some tips from the Cortland County website about paying your taxes:
- Read the tax bill thoroughly. If you don’t understand part or all of it, contact the Tax Collector for an explanation.
- Research the amount of the tax bill and be sure you were assessed correctly.
- See if you qualify for Senior Citizen, STAR, Veteran’s or Enhanced STAR exemptions.
Your local Assessor can assist you with each of these items, as well.
