Tax Notes

  • 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).

    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.     

    Current (2022-2023) Hyde Park CSD Tax Rates by Town:

    Town                 Tax Rate/Thousand

    Clinton                    19.370652

    Hyde Park              43.286580

    Pleasant Valley    22.639848

    Poughkeepsie      19.370654

    Rhinebeck             19.370630


    Senior Citizen Extension: Please also be aware that the Hyde Park Central School District Board of Education has approved a due date extension of no more than five (5) business days for the payment of school taxes without interest or penalty to any qualified resident of the School District, 65 years of age or older, who receives an exemption under Real Property Tax Law Section 425 Subdivision 4 and/or Section 467 ("senior citizen exemption"), or who has received a credit pursuant to N.Y. Tax Law Section 606(eee) related to a principal residence within the District.  The district has a list of those residents that qualify.  For this collection year that would extend qualified residents’ due date to October 18, 2022 without any interest or penalty.  Please indicate to your tax collector/receiver if you intend to take advantage of this extension.
