Tax Payments Due Feb. 15

Town Clerk Marjory Jaeger is reminding Amherst residents that town and county taxes are due on or before Thursday, Feb. 15.

As a way to assist taxpayers, Jaeger said there are alternative methods and extended hours for collection.

“There are several options to pay town and county taxes: by mail, in person, online and at select M&T Bank branches,” Jaeger said.

Full payments can be made by check or money order at participating M&T locations. Taxpayers should check the back of their bills for a list of the area branches.

Online payment, where service fees apply, can be made by e-check, credit and debit cards at www.amherst.ny.us.

In person, the Town Clerk’s Office accepts cash, checks and money orders.

Also accepted are credit and debit cards, which will have a service fee applied.

Mailed payments must be postmarked on or before Feb. 15 to avoid penalties.
