Credit Card Payments Accepted for School Taxes

The Ichabod Crane Board of Education accepts online credit card payments for school tax bills. Taxpayers may access this service online here. Although the Kinderhook Bank will still be accepting payments by check or cash, as they have in prior years, the option to pay by credit card is available only online.

While the District incurs no costs for making this service available, those taxpayers taking advantage of this new service should be aware there will be a convenience fee charged by Municipay for processing the credit card payments. Taxpayers will be charged 2.65% of their tax bills or a minimum of $3 convenience fee charged when paying by credit card.
