SPECIAL NOTICE: Many of our Amherst taxpayers and Amherst property owners may have noticed that former Amherst Town Clerk Marjory Jaeger’s name was still on the main envelope that arrived today with your 2019 Town and County tax bill inside, along with a return envelope also with Ms. Jaeger’s name on it. However, the tax bill itself said to make checks payable to Jeffery C. Zeplowitz, Amherst Town Clerk. While this may have caused some confusion to taxpayers and property owners alike, please know this was only done as a way of saving taxpayer money by bypassing the printing of new Town Clerk envelopes with current clerk Jeffery C. Zeplowitz’s name on it. If you have any further questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact the Town Clerk’s office at 631-7021. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

At this time, the Office of the Amherst Town Clerk is now accepting online payments for the new 2019 Town and County Tax Bills.

Please Note: Online payments do have convenience fees associated with it.

If you do not want to pay your bill online, you may print your bill from our online tax system and pay in person at the Clerk’s Office, Municipal Building, 5583 Main Street, Williamsville, 8:00am - 4:30pm, Monday - Friday.

Any questions, please call (716) 631-7021. Thank you.
