PREPAYMENT OF 2018 TAXES – December 28, 2017 – 4:46 PM
VILLAGE RESIDENTS – After further discussion and consideration with our Village attorney and accounting firm the Village will accept checks presented for 2018 Village real property taxes in an amount up to last year’s tax bill. To qualify you must drop off a check at the Village Office tomorrow, Friday December 29, 2017 between 9 AM and 4 PM, or mail a check postmarked before 11:59 pm on December 31, 2017. No wire transfers will be accepted. The Village will hold the check for 10-days in case things change. If not we will return the check to you.
The Village makes no representation that this will result in the ability to deduct such payments in 2017 or as to any tax matter; current authority would appear to require a tax warrant or assessment prior to year end which has not and for various reasons cannot occur. The relief the Village would require would have to come from the Governor’s office, the IRS, or certain movement in the courts. Please consult your own tax adviser. This situation is constantly evolving and will likely continue to do so until the matter is finally settled. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
PREPAYMENT OF 2018 TAXES – December 27, 2017 – 7:34 PM
VILLAGE RESIDENTS – As we have reported to Village residents, since Governor Cuomo issued his Executive Order on December 22, 2017, the Board of Trustees has been working to see if we could develop a procedure whereby residents could repay their 2018 property taxes and obtain an income tax deduction in 2017.
This afternoon the Internal Revenue Service issued a statement that conclusively settles this issue. It is clear from the statement that the prepayment of 2018 Village property taxes will not be deductible in 2017. Attached for your information is a link to the IRS statement. As you can see Example 2 in the statement is directly on point. The Village Board does not provide tax advice.

PREPAYMENT OF 2018 TAXES – December 23, 2017
VILLAGE RESIDENTS – Based on present knowledge, we are limited to pre-paying the town taxes. The Town had dated their tax warrant December 27, which would allow taxpayers to pay 2018 taxes between December 27 and December 31. The problem with Village and School taxes is that they cannot date a warrant earlier because their budget process does not occur until 2018. The tax collector cannot collect taxes without a warrant, and a warrant cannot be issued until the Village and the School go through their budget process.
However, based on Cuomo’s announcement yesterday The Board of Trustees is taking another look immediately and will communicate its findings to the community.
TOWN TAXES – The 2018 Tax bills are expected to be available by December 27, 2017. Tax payments should be mailed to Tuxedo Town Hall, One Temple Drive, Tuxedo, NY 10987 attention Tuxedo Tax Collector. In person payments can be made during the month of January. Monday and Tuesdays 9:00am -3:00pm, Wednesday Night’s 4:30 – 6:30. Early payment schedule will be released once the tax warrant has been issued.
