Important Notice about South Seneca Tax Bills: School Property tax bills were sent by our vendor with a printed error. If you paid your school tax bill before 10/30/20, disregard this notice. For those tax payers whose payments are due by 11/30/20, the amount listed on the tax bill does not include the 3% penalty. This penalty amount would still be due if paid after 10/31/20. Anyone who has not paid their bill by October 31 will receive a new bill with the corrected amount due. Go to www.taxlookup.net for the correct amount after 10/31/20 or call 315-539-1563 to receive a corrected bill.
