The mission of the Tax Receiver's Department is to collect all taxes and other debts owed to the Town of Milton, and to properly account for them in a timely manner. In addition, the Tax Receiver's Department applies all state and local statutes equally, without favoritism or prejudice to its citizens.

Receiving your Tax Bills
Taxpayers will receive their tax bills the first week in January. If your tax bill is not received, you may contact the tax office at 518-884-2765 and a new bill will be forwarded. You may also go online to to print a copy of your tax bill and obtain payment information.
Tax payers are responsible to pay their taxes, even if the tax bill has not been received. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the taxpayer of the responsibility to pay the taxes and all fees due at the time of payment.
