Cayuga County is waiving penalties and interest on late taxes.
Both town and county tax payments will have interest waived moving forward.
The Cayuga County Legislature approved that measure at a recent meeting. The Citizen reports that both 5% penalty and 1% interest will be waived.
Officials cited NY on PAUSE, Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order, as well as the state of emergency, which remains active.
“Many residents of Cayuga County have been under additional financial strain due to the COVID-19 outbreak and corresponding policies to slow the spread,” the resolution said.
