On behalf of school boards, the New York State School Boards Association thanks Gov. Andrew Cuomo for extending the payment deadline for property taxpayers in certain school districts affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Executive Order #70 issued Nov. 9 extends the period for paying taxes without interest or penalties for up to 21 days for taxpayers in 34 school districts in Nassau County and one school district in Orange County.
The governor’s action provides some respite for taxpayers that have experienced unthinkable losses.
Throughout the storm recovery, people from across the state have come together to help their fellow neighbor. The decision by the governor is a great example of how the Empire State comes together in a crisis situation.
