The Elmira City School District in conjunction with GST BOCES has provided a Web site that allows anyone to access tax information on any property in the school district. The site allows visitors to look up tax rates and school code numbers as well as parcels by using any one of the following:
- Last name, or
- Map number, or
- Bill number or
- Street address.
This search engine works best with just one criteria selected.
All parcels that meet the criteria are listed below the Search button, and then click on the Key field to display the parcel. It shows the District, bill number, SWIS and map numbers, primary name, property description, assessed and taxable values, tax rate, STAR savings, tax due and date due, amount paid and date paid.
Payments should be mailed to School Tax Collector, P.O. Box 5504, Binghamton, NY 13902-5504. If choosing to pay in person, taxpayers should present their tax bill and payment (CHECK OR MONEY ORDER ONLY) to any teller at Community Bank, NA, located at 300 W. Water St., Elmira, NY.
Taxes can be paid in two installments. The first installment is due by Oct. 31, 2016, and the second installment is due by March 31, 2017.
After March 31, 2017, contact the Chemung County Treasurer at 737-2927.
