Town of Saugerties Tax Collections and Payments

In the Town of Saugerties, the General Tax is a Town Tax and a County Tax.  The Saugerties Tax Receiver is responsible for the billing and collection of current taxes for the Town of Saugerties and Ulster County.  Tax bills are mailed during the first week of January.  The tax bill covers the period of January 1st - December 31st of the same calendar year. 

 

General (Town and County) taxes are due January 31st of each year penalty free.  Full payments must be in the Tax Department on the last day of the month in January, or post-marked on that day at the Post Office. All mailed-in payments must have a valid U.S. Postmark on or before the due date.  If a due date falls on a Saturday or Sunday, payments will be accepted on the following Monday. 

 

Please pay careful attention to your tax bill.  Due dates and penalties owed are time sensitive/dependent and sending the correct/exact amount will avoid multiple mailings and possible further penalties.
