Pay Taxes Online
Pay online using the Onondaga County Department of Finance website with the link below.
Residents of The Town of Clay can make payments by mailing in a personal check or by using the secured drop-box in front of the Town Hall building (NO CASH IN THE DROPBOX, please). Your tax receiver will mail you a stamped paid receipt.
We want to keep our residents safe, but also need our resident's help to keep our small municipal staff healthy so their offices can remain open and provide other essential local services. When you make unnecessary visits to these public buildings, you are putting everyone at risk.
We strongly encourage residents to be considerate of everyone's health and safety by avoiding in person payments and helping to spread the word that U.S. Mail or online payments are the best choice.
Please mail payments to:
ATTN: Brian Hall
