East Hampton Town has issued an online reminder to residents that Wednesday, May 31, is the deadline for the second half of property tax payments.
The town also sent notices by mail, on April 26.
Tax bills can be viewed online at egov.ehamptonny.gov. When paying by check, residents should write their bill number and telephone number on the check.
The town offers several ways to make payments, noting that "we strongly recommend that you send your payment by certified mail." Mailed payments must be postmarked by May 31. They should be sent to East Hampton Tax Receiver, P.O. Box 50017, Newark, N.J. 07101, or to the tax receiver's office at 300 Pantigo Place, Suite 106, East Hampton 11937.
Via the above website, a credit/debit card processing fee of 2.5 percent applies for that online payment option; for e-checks, the fee is $1.75.
Payment by cash or check will also be accepted at the tax receiver's office at the above address on Pantigo Place. The office is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., excluding holidays; it will be closed on Monday, Memorial Day. After-hours payments can be dropped into the mail slot at the office.
Residents of "The End" can drop off their payments at the Montauk Community Playhouse, 240 Edgemere Street, between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., or at a local Dime Bank branch.
