Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the financial issues that it’s fallout are causing for many local residents, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran announced that she has signed an executive order extending the deadline to pay 2019-2020 second half school district taxes to July 1, 2020.
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran issued the following statement on the tax extension:
“Last night I signed an executive order to provide much needed relief during this period of uncertainty to residents facing financial hardship as a result of the economic shutdown caused by COVID-19. I have extended the deadline to pay 2019-2020 second half school district taxes to July 1, 2020. This order effectively forgives any interest or penalties owed on these taxes and clarifies that any penalties going forward are calculated from the new July 1st deadline. Refunds will be issued and undeposited checks will be voided and returned as soon as possible. I worked hard with Governor Cuomo to permit Nassau County residents this additional time and thank him for working together to provide greater relief to our residents.”
