Welcome to the Rotterdam Tax Office! The Tax Office is responsible for the collection of property and school taxes for approximately 13,000 parcels. In addition, the Tax Office also collects the water bill payments. 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. Taxes are collected twice a year in the Town of Rotterdam. The town and county tax is mailed out the first week in January, and the school tax is sent the first week in September. Water bills are mailed the first week in June.
