Gov. Andrew Cuomo has not responded to a letter from Fort Plain Central School District Superintendent Douglas Burton asking for an extension of the property tax payment deadline by 21 days because of the property damage after the flooding on June 28.
If the governor grants the extension, the due date for property taxes would move to Oct. 23 without penalty or interest.
Real Property Tax Law provides for an extension of the final date to pay taxes upon request and approval by the governor as a result of a state disaster emergency.
Only the governor can grant an extension, not the board of education.
