Upcoming 2018 School Tax Collection

What a wonderful summer it has been here in the Town of Perinton!  We hope all of our residents have had a chance to relax and enjoy all the great activities and events the Town has to offer with family and friends. 

As summer comes to an end and we begin to prepare for a new school year, we are reminded that the 2018 School Tax Collection will soon be upon us as well.  In an effort to make sure our residents are properly informed and prepared for the upcoming collection, we have included some important information below.


The Town of Perinton Tax Office serves as the school district’s collecting agent.  Although we handle tax collection, the development of and final decision on the school budget is determined by a public vote that occurs toward the end of each school year.  If you have any questions regarding your school district’s budget, please be sure to contact your school district directly.
