Senator David Carlucci, a Democrat, has introduced a bill to extend New York’s local property tax deadline.
The new deadline would be December 31st.
The bill would delay the quarterly installment payments for county, town, and school property taxes in New York through the end of the year.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a massive economic toll on families and small businesses across our state,” said Carlucci, who’s running for Congress in the Hudson Valley. “Unemployment and underemployment rates are skyrocketing, and many New Yorkers and small businesses are struggling to pay their bills. We do not want residents having to choose between property taxes and medical care, prescription drugs, or food.”
The deadline to file income taxes has been delayed to July 15th.
