Although school taxes are collected by the Town's Receiver of Taxes, payments are forwarded to your local school district and, if applicable, a local library district. Hempstead Town plays no role in setting the school tax rate and does not benefit from these payments. Your local board of education, which is independently elected, and over which the Town has no control, establishes your school budget. For more information about your school taxes, contact your local school district.
Payment by credit card will incur a service fee of 2.3% with a minimum of $1.50 for all cards. Payment by electronic check will incur a service fee of $0.90. The fee for qualifying Visa Debit transactions is $3.95. These fees are not paid to the Town of Hempstead, they are paid to eGov Strategies for processing the transaction. The Town of Hempstead does not profit from this service fee.
Please note: Only the current, open tax year can be paid. Once a tax levy is closed, payments should be made to the Nassau County Treasurer. Please contact the Nassau County Treasurer's Office to pay past taxes and open tax liens.
