Payments by Mail and Phone

Mail-in Payments

To pay your tax bill by mail, please make checks payable to Jeanine C. Driscoll, Receiver of Taxes, be sure to sign and date your check, verify that the numerical and written amounts agree, and write your school district, section, block, and lot numbers on the check. Do NOT send in the entire bill. Enclose your check in the return envelope provided along with the:

  •  #1 tax stub, if paying only the 1st half tax amount
  • #2 tax stub, if paying only the 2nd half tax amount
  • #1 & #2 stubs, if paying both 1stand 2nd half tax.

Enclose the payment stub(s) with your check and send to the Town of Hempstead Receiver of Taxes, 200 North Franklin Street, Hempstead, NY 11550


To avoid paying a penalty, your payment envelope MUST be postmarked on or before the last day of the penalty-free collection period. By law, only an official U.S. Postal Service cancellation date stamp is acceptable as proof that your payment was mailed timely. A metered postmark is NOT acceptable. If mailing near a tax deadline, registered or certified mail (return receipt requested) is suggested, OR have the envelope hand canceled (date stamped) at your local post office.
