To avoid having your payment returned:

  • Be sure to sign your check.
  • Only full payments can be accepted.
  • Make sure check is payable to "Debra Wallace, Receiver" for Town and County Taxes. For School Taxes checks are payable to "Vestal Central School"
  • Make sure the numeric amount is clearly written and equal to the written dollar amount.  No rounding up or overpayments will be accepted.
  • Make sure your payment is postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service on or before the due date of the payment. Metered mail is not valid proof of mailing date.
  • Do not staple or tape the check.  They rip and then will need to be returned.
