    Understanding Your School Tax Bill

Tax Collection Overview

  • School District Tax Rates:

    The Board of Education typically sets the tax rates for each school year in August.  The tax rates are based upon the total tax levy for the year in the approved budget and final municipal assessments for each of the five towns in the district (Clinton, Hyde Park, Pleasant Valley, Poughkeepsie & Rhinebeck).   

     


    Current (2018-2019) Hyde Park CSD Tax Rates by Town:

    Town                                                                                           Tax Rate/Thousand

    Clinton  …………….…………..………………………………     23.102159

    Hyde Park ……………………………………………………..      40.530300

    Pleasant Valley …………………………..…………………...      23.102159

    Poughkeepsie ………………….………………….…………       23.102159

    Rhinebeck ……………………………………………………       25.111043


    Tax rates can vary between the towns because property in each town could be assessed at different levels in relation to full market value.  After each town submits their final assessment information to the State Office of Real Property Services each summer, NYS assigns each town an equalization rate to account for any differences in assessment practices.  The equalization process is designed to fairly apportion the total tax levy between the towns and result in similar tax bills for properties with similar values regardless of municipality.  The District does not control any part of the assessment or equalization process.

    Tax Collection Dates:  This year tax collection will begin on September 10, 2018 and end on November 1, 2018.  Please note that two percent (2%) interest will be applied to payments made between October 10, 2018 and November 1, 2018.  Unpaid school taxes are turned over to the Dutchess County Commissioner of Finance.

    Payment Locations:  NOTE: We are NOT accepting School Tax payments at this time.  The Tax Collector for Clinton, Pleasant Valley and Rhinebeck is Donna Kuklis.  Donna is located at the HPCSD Administrative Office, 11 Boice Road, Hyde Park.  Payments can be mailed to:  Hyde Park CSD, Attn: Tax Collector, PO Box 2033, Hyde Park, NY 12538 or paid electronically, with a check via our website by clicking here (fees may apply).  Payments can also be made in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. or by appointment (except for legal holidays).
