Taxes may be paid electronically on the Town of Lancaster website at www.lancasterny.gov or by using the link at the top of this page. Credit Card users will be assessed a fee equal to 2.45% of the payment amount, Visa Debit Card users will be assessed a flat fee of $3.95 and eCheck users will be assessed a $1.75 flat fee (eChecks are the most economical type of payment). All fees are assessed by the banking institution and are retained in total by the banking institution.
Taxes can be paid by mail with a personal check, bank draft or money order; receipts, if requested, will be issued by return mail.
Taxes can also be paid in person at the Tax Department in cash or with a personal check, bank draft or money order. Checks should be made payable to Diane M. Terranova, Town Clerk.
Tax payments can be made by using the Town Hall’s night depository, which is located at the entrance to the new addition of Town Hall facing Clark Street. Enclose a check or money order along with your tax bill in an envelope. Be sure to enter your phone number on the check or envelope. Note: This depository is emptied daily and at midnight following the last penalty free payment dates in February and October.
