Seasons Greetings!

The start of the new year is quickly approaching and along with that comes the beginning of the 2019 Town and County tax collection. 

This year, residents will see a reduction in the Town tax rate! Town residents outside the village will receive a $0.092 tax decrease per dollar, while town residents who live in the village will receive a $0.003 tax cut per dollar as well. Under the 2019 budget, for every $100 of taxes collected, $68 goes to the schools, $25 goes to Monroe County, and $7 goes to the Town of Perinton.   

The Town of Perinton’s full value tax rate has been one of the three lowest in Monroe County for more than 35 years.  We encourage residents to participate in public meetings at all levels of government, including school board meetings, to ensure full community input during the budget and policy-making process and throughout the year.

Information about the upcoming Town and County Tax cycle is as follows:

  • Tax bills for the upcoming 2019 Town and County tax collection will be mailed on December 31.
  • The first installment or full payment will be due on Monday, February 11 (due to February 10 falling on the weekend)
  • The Town will accept payments in the form of check or cash in person at the Town Tax Office (9AM - 5PM, Monday through Friday) or by mail (US postmark accepted)        
  • Tax payments may also be dropped in the Tax Drop Box in front of the Town Hall entrance.  Please adhere to all due dates and interest schedules.
  • Credit card payments can be made online at www.monroecounty.gov - please be aware that a fee, equaling 3% of the total amount paid, will be charged by the credit card company when paying by credit or debit card
