The vendor that the City School District of Albany works with to process school tax payments is experiencing a delay in posting payments to the tax software system. Like the district and many other organizations throughout the community, the vendor has had challenges hiring additional staff for processing payments this year, which has contributed to these delays.
Please note that as long as your correct tax payment is postmarked by Sept. 30, you will not incur any penalties irrespective of when the payment is posted.
Additionally, due to the delays in posting payments, corrected payments will be received without penalty for up to two weeks after the rejection notice is sent, as long as the original payment was postmarked by Sept. 24.
We are working to respond to each call and email as quickly as we can. If you have any additional questions, please contact our Tax Department via email or at (518) 475-6035.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
