I have some bad news for some of you. Do yourself a favor and click on the Youtube link below, then keep reading.
The Travers is over, summer is ending, and your city taxes are due. If you pay your Saratoga Springs city taxes in quarterly installments, don't forget to drop your third quarter payment off to city hall or get the envelope postmarked (not a meter mark) by September 1, 2010 to avoid late fees. Click here for the tax payment page on the Saratoga Springs city web site. If all that wasn't depressing enough, I'll hit you with a double whammy and tell you that Saratoga Springs school tax bills will be mailed out in the next week or so, and those will be due October 4th. Don't worry - be happy.
Tax payments may be mailed to the Commissioner of Finance, PO Box 328, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866-0328 or hand delivered to City Hall at 474 Broadway. The tax office is located on the first floor of City Hall, first door on the left when entering from Broadway. The office hours are Monday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All checks should be made payable to COMMISSIONER OF FINANCE. In every life we have some trouble, but when you worry you make it double. Don't worry - be happy.
