In an effort to control the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our residents and employees, Broome County Real Property will no longer offer off-site collection for school or property tax payments in any of the towns. Off-site tax collection offices will be centralized at the Oakdale Mall, former Sears building and the Broome County Office, Edwin L. Crawford Building. Both locations will have a drop-box available for payments as well. The former Sears location will open Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm for collection of current taxes only, September and October for school tax payments and January through March for property tax payments, for the districts and towns that Broome County Real Property collects taxes for.

The Broome County Office location will continue to collect both current and delinquent taxes year-round. 

These changes take effect September 1, 2020 and will apply to the following school districts: Binghamton City School and Sunrise Terrace, Chenango Forks, Chenango Valley, Deposit Central School, Harpursville, Johnson City, Maine-Endwell, Susquehanna Valley, Union-Endicott and Whitney Point School Districts. In January, the following towns: Binghamton, Chenango, Conklin, Dickinson, Fenton, Kirkwood, Nanticoke, Union, Windsor and the City of Binghamton.

 

The Town Hall is now open to the public.  You may utilize the black drop box located at the front door for dog license renewals and water/sewer payments if you prefer not to come into the building.  No cash - check or money order only.  If you need further assistance, call 775-1966 and leave a message.  

In light of the current situation regarding COVID 19, wherein public involvement is curtailed and consequently spending is impeded which results in loss of sales tax revenue, the Town of Kirkwood has put a spending freeze in place for all departments.  If there is an approved expenditure outside of the normal, which has Town Board approval, the Town Supervisor must be contacted first before proceeding.  If there are purchases or other spending that are not in the current budget, the Town Supervisor must be contacted first before any spending is done.
