When are town/county tax payments due?

The Mt. Pleasant Receiver of Taxes collects all town and county taxes for Sleepy Hollow, Pleasantville, Hawthorne, Valhalla, Thornwood, and parts of Chappaqua and Briarcliff Manor that are located in the Town of Mt. Pleasant.

Town/County Tax is due by April 30th. Taxes can be paid at the Town of Mt. Pleasant Town Hall at 1 Town Hall Plaza in Valhalla. As of May 1st, all unpaid County/Town tax amounts are subject to a penalty. For questions call Grace Papa at 914-742-2348.

Bills are mailed the last week of March. If you do not receive your bill, you must contact us.

Please note: In order to avoid any tax penalty, your envelope must carry a United States Postmark no later than April 30th.

If paying in person bring the entire bill.

Payment Options


To avoid penalties, if you pay your taxes by mail during the last days of the month, you must witness a timely U.S. postmark being affixed to the envelope. Pitney Bowes (corporate meters) and foreign postmarks are not acceptable. If you choose to pay electronically through your bank, please allow 7 days for mailing as typically the banks do not have U.S. postmark.


As a convenience to our taxpayers, the Town of Mount Pleasant offers the option of paying taxes online. There is a 2.25% service fee for paying by credit/debit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or Amex), however, there is no fee for paying by electronic check (ACH). Access the Online Tax Payment page to get started. Please be advised, you will need to have your bill number and amount of the original billing to complete the payment transaction.

Please note: To access a copy of your bill, please visit the Tax Status Information page. Please note you will have to accept the terms of the site > enter your name, address, or section/block/lot. When your property details display, select "Bill Detail" for the current tax bill to obtain your bill number and the full amount due.


The Receiver of Taxes Department is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
