PROPERTY TAX BILLING & COLLECTION
Property Tax Collection
The City of Hudson's fiscal year is January 1 to December 31. The City issues a single property tax bill for the year on January 1, which includes both City and County property taxes. Quarterly payments are due as follows:
|1st Quarter||January 31||City & County Taxes
Relevied unpaid water bills if applicable
|2nd Quarter||April 15||City Taxes
Relevied unpaid sewer bills if applicable
|3rd Quarter||July 31||City & County Taxes|
|4th Quarter||September 15||City Taxes|
Penalties for late payments are 1% per month. Postmarks are accepted.
I never received my tax bill or I received it late; do I still have to pay the penalty?
Yes, the failure to mail a statement or the failure of the property owner to receive a statement will not affect the validity of the taxes or interest prescribed by law (New York State Real Property Tax Law 922). In addition, neither the tax Collector nor any other official has legal authority to waive statutory penalty charges. These are fixed by the Real Property Tax Law. If they are waived, the collecting officer will be personally responsible. As all records are audited by State examiners, there is absolutely no discretion in this matter. The Constitution and the law of the State mandate this procedure.
Short-term Rental Operator Residency Requirements
As of December 2020, opertators of short-term lodging are required to be a resident of the city of Hudson and may operate up to three (3) short-term rental units, all three units to be located on the same parcel on which the resident resides.
