WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - Hold off on prepaying your 2018 Westchester County property taxes.

Ned McCormack, senior advisor to Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, announced Tuesday it is not possible for the county to issue its 2018 tax warrants over the next four days for a "whole host of legal, operational and practical reasons."

"By law, the county can only issue one complete warrant for the 259,034 properties across all of Westchester’s localities and special districts," McCormack said. "There is no way to do this responsibly by the end of the year given all of the laws that the county must follow under Westchester’s charter and the U.S. tax code, as well as a host of other variables and unknowns.”

Last week Gov. Andrew Cuomo allowing New York state property owners to pre-pay their 2018 school and local property taxes so they can deduct them from their federal income tax this year.

The tax reform bill recently passed by Congress caps state and local property tax deductions at $10,000.
