At this time you can see on their website if the taxes were paid at the local level. If not you will have to wait until the taxes have been balanced and brought into the Treasurer’s office for figures.
General School taxes will be relevied onto the following year property tax bill if not physically paid by the last day of collection at the Treasurer’s office. (The exception is delinquent County parcels of Hudson City School taxes which remain online and payable at the Treasurer’s office.)
Delinquent Tax Information
Town taxes that are returned as delinquent to the County Treasurer's office will be payable after June 20. They will have additional penalties and interest added to them so please wait for the figures to appear before remitting monies. There is a period between Town collection ending (May 31) and acceptance at the County Treasurer's office where these taxes cannot be paid anywhere.
School tax returns will be available on the Total Collection site beginning
November 15 of each year. There is a period between School collection
ending and acceptance at the County Treasurer's office where these taxes cannot be paid anywhere. Generally the* estimated dates of collection at the County Treasurer are November 15-November 30 2:00 pm.
These dates change each year and are published in the Hudson Register Star Newspaper.
* If not paid by the final date/time for that year ALL district school taxes
(excepting Hudson City School District) are relevied onto the next years
property tax bill (January) with an additional 7% penalty added. They are
NOT payable anywhere between the final date of collection at the
Treasurer’s office and January 1 with the local Town Tax Collection.
Hudson City School District is excepted and remains at the County Treasurer for collection.
The restrictions for the void periods are due to closing of the Town or
School books, returning to the County Treasurer, balancing and preparation for acceptance of monies.
