Welcome to the official website of Jefferson County New York

Delinquent Property Tax Program

Hard times? Fell behind on property taxes? Worried about losing your property, but don't have the full amount you owe?

JEFFERSON COUNTY CAN HELP!!

With a 25% down payment (certified check, money order or cash), we can spread your delinquent tax payments into eight installments over two years. The interest rate will be the same as it is on back taxes, and you can prepay any time!

Best news: if you make your delinquent installment payments on time and pay new taxes when due, Jefferson County will hold off on foreclosure!

WE WANT YOU TO KEEP YOUR PROPERTY

To apply, print out the form at this website ( or call for an application ), then send your application to:

Jefferson County Attorney's Office
