Service Description
Welcome to the Guilderland Tax Office.

The Tax Office is responsible for the collection of property and school taxes for approximately 12,000 parcels.  In addition, the Tax Office also collects the water bill payments on behalf of the Guilderland Water District.  All powers and duties of this office, as well as collection procedures, are statutory and defined in the New York State Real Property Tax Law, except for water collection, which is defined in Town Law.

The staff and I welcome any inquires pertaining to collection policies as well as general tax information.  We offer our assistance to residents, realtors, lending institutions, title companies, and other entities that may require tax information. 

For the convenience of our Town residents, we offer several methods for paying taxes.  Checks, cash, credit card options and Internet transactions are all acceptable; however, please see further information under “Frequently Asked Questions” for details.

Thank you,

Lynne Buchanan
Receiver of Taxes
