Instructions for Paying School Taxes

2020-21 Tax Collection Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Stillwater Central School District will not be offering an in-person tax payment option at the district or at Ballston Spa National Bank for the 2020-21 school tax collection. Payments will only be accepted through the mail (postmark determines the date). All residents will receive an envelope to mail payments to:

Carrie Urdang, Tax Collector
Stillwater CSD
P.O. Box 14855
Albany, NY 12212

New this year, you can also pay by credit card online here. *Please note, there is a one-time transaction fee of $.50 and 3.5% fee paid by the taxpayer directly to the vendor.

Please keep in mind that tax bills should arrive to your home in late August. Thank you for your attention, understanding and cooperation.

If you have any questions, please contact Carrie Urdang, School Tax Collector at or (518) 373-6100, ext 30010.
