Cortlandt Candidate

Receiver of Taxes

My commitment to first-class customer service provided along with up-to-date cost effective collection practices remains steadfast. The Office continues to be in the forefront with the provision of internet services; public access to tax records; and the availability of on-line tax payment option. While these services provide greater flexibility and convenience to the taxpayer, they also serve to reduce operating costs. As President of the Westchester County Association for Receivers, I can easily say the Cortlandt Tax Office is one we can all be proud of.
