NOTICE TO TAXPAYERS
OF THE
CITY OF ALBANY
 
You may be able to prepay your 2018 property taxes on December 29 at City Hall.

Given what is happening in Washington with respect to tax reform and the possible elimination or capping of the state and local tax (SALT) deduction, the City of Albany expects to be able to accept payments of 2018 property taxes on December 29, 2017. Albany’s authorization to accept these payments is premised on the expectation that Albany County will provide the City its Tax Warrant on or before December 29.
  
Please be advised that the authority for the City to collect 2018 property taxes on December 29, 2017 does not address the deductibility of such prepaid taxes for income tax purposes, as that issue is under the purview of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  - Upon advice from the New York Conference of Mayors

Payments can be made at:
Treasurer’s Office
City Hall
24 Eagle Street, Room 109
Albany, New York 12207

 

All property taxes are due and, if mailed, must be postmarked by the US Post Office by January 31st (February 1st for Senior exemption bills) to avoid penalties and interest. Under New York State law, penalties MUST be added if a payment is late under all circumstances, and municipalities have no discretion to waive the interest added for late payments.


The Treasurer’s office now offers multiple ways for you to obtain property tax bill information.

Save a trip to City Hall, view, print and/or pay my tax bill online at payments.albanyny.gov. Payment may be made directly from a checking account for a $.50 cent fee, or by credit card for a $.25 cent fee plus 1.95% of the total payment. 

You can request a change to your billing address by emailing taxbilladdresschange@albanyny.gov
