In Response to Trump Tax Bill, Town of Ramapo to Allow Residents to Pre-Pay Property Taxes

 

RAMAPO – Following formal adoption of the Town of Ramapo’s final tax rate for 2018, Incoming Supervisor Michael Specht today announced that the Town will allow residents to pre-pay their taxes beginning December 28.  The move comes as Republicans and President Trump are preparing to sign into law a tax bill that will cap the amount of state, local and property taxes people can deduct on their federal tax returns. For some residents, pre-paying their 2018 property tax bill before New Year’s could allow them to deduct their property taxes in their 2017 filings. 

To assist residents seeking to pre-pay their property taxes, the town will have extra staff on duty during business hours on Thursday, December 28 and Friday, December 29.

“Our residents are rightfully concerned that the tax bill passed by President Trump and Republicans in Congress will eliminate tax deductions they have come to rely upon,” said incoming Supervisor Specht. “For any residents who have been advised by their financial planners to help offset the impact of this tax bill by pre-paying their 2018 taxes, we will do everything we can to help. We will have extra staff on hand to make it as easy as possible.”
