Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed an executive order last week extending the period for paying real estate taxes by 21 days, to June 21. Property owners in Suffolk County and elsewhere will be allowed to delay payment until then without interest or penalties. The move is intended to assist people who have been financially impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Town of East Hampton normally collects payments on behalf of the county. Payments that had not been made by Monday must now be sent directly to the Suffolk County Comptroller, 330 Center Drive, Riverhead 11901. Those paying after June 21 will be assessed interest and penalties.
