New York TaxGlance
View and pay your tax bill online through NY TaxGlance, a website available to the public allowing you access to your Town and County taxes.
Please Note: A service fee will be charged when using a credit card, debit card, or e-check. This is because the Town cannot discount fees that are mandated by law, nor can we increase these fees to cover the cost of accepting credit/debit cards. We have, therefore, contracted with a third party who handles our credit/debit card and e-check transactions, as well as guarantee that all over-the-counter and on-line transactions remain secure and confidential.
