Some Town of Tonawanda tax bills are getting lost in the mail

Nearly 100 tax bills mailed out by the Town of Tonawanda have been returned as undeliverable despite having the correct address, according to Town Clerk Marguerite Greco.

She said the town mailed 17,000 tax bills on Jan. 11. Normally, a few are returned as undeliverable when a property owner has died or moved. But this year far more were returned by the U.S. Postal Service.

Greco said they are working with post office officials to "try to get to the bottom of this."

Town property owners who did not receive a tax bill can visit www.tonawanda.ny.us to view, print or pay their bills or can call the Clerk's Office at 877-8800. According to state law, bills are mailed as a courtesy. Tax bills are due by Feb. 15, whether or not you receive a notice, said Greco, who apologized for the inconvenience.
