Tax Collection

The vendor that the Mechanicville City School District works with to process school tax payments has notified us that they are experiencing a delay in posting payments to the tax software system. As is the case with the district and many other organizations throughout the country, the vendor has had challenges hiring additional staff for processing payments this year, resulting in these delays.

Please note, that as long as your correct tax payment is postmarked by Sept. 30, you will not incur any penalties regardless of when the payment is posted.

Additionally, if a payment is rejected (for example, a check is written for the wrong amount) and is postmarked by September 24, 2021, the vendor will notify the taxpayer of the error and we will allow two weeks from the notification of the rejection for the corrected payment to be received without penalty.

You can check the status of your payment on our website:

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work with our vendor to get this issue resolved.
