Payments received must be postmarked by due date to avoid next level penalty charges (or next business day on weekends and Holidays).

Do NOT combine property tax payment with Village of Chester water or sewer check payments.

If you have an escrow account and receive your tax bill, please forward the bill to your financial institution.

Payment will be accepted by the Village Tax Collector with penalty through November 1. After this date, payment (no personal checks) can only be made to the Orange County Commissioner of Finance in Goshen N.Y. until Nov 15. Unpaid taxes after Nov. 15 will be re-levied onto that January County & Town tax bill. 

Returned Check Fee

The Village will assess a fee of $20 for all returned checks. You are required to bring in cash or money order only, in the amount of the check plus the $20 fee within 7 business days.
