The world is digital now. The Islip’s Tax Receiver’s Payment Portal needed a facelift for taxpayers to easily pay their tax bills online, find necessary documents or seek help or resolution for their challenges.
The Tax Receiver’s Payment Portal had not been updated for some time. While this service had been available for 10 years, many taxpayers were not aware if its existence nor the fact this site is a place for taxpayers to get copies of bills or view their official property information from the convenience of their homes, offices or mobile devices.
Andy Fixed It
In the ongoing fight to reduce tax and mail fraud in his first year in office, Andy rebuilt the Tax Receiver’s online payments platform. It’s now easier to pay taxes online. By promoting this feature, about 20% more taxpayers made payments online in the 2021-2022 tax year. That number rose roughly another 20% in tax year 2022-2023.
Andy is planning a complete overhaul of the Tax Receiver’s main website, which is separate from the Online Payment Portal. As the town’s #1 most visited online department, he looks to build a true 21st century digital portal; a source to find one’s property information, to view easy-to-understand tutorial videos and to order tax bills online in a convenient and friendly atmosphere available 24 hours a day.
