Hempstead town official: Avoid double-billing on taxes

On Monday, Jan. 8, 2018, Hempstead Town Receiver of Taxes Donald Clavin is scheduled to urge property owners who prepaid their 2018 taxes to consult with their mortgage companies to avoid getting double-billed. Nearly 10,000 town residents visited Clavin's office during the final week of 2017 to prepay their 2017-2018 second-half school taxes and 2018 general taxes in the hope that they'd be able to claim a deduction.
