Welcome to the
Town of Dannemora's Clerk's Office
Property tax collection for 2024 begins January 2, 2023. Payments should be mailed to: Rebecca Langlois, Tax Collector, 78 Higby Road, Ellenburg Depot NY, 12935. Mailed payments are posted according to US Postmark. If mailing on the last day of the month, ensure it is POSTMARKED that day, as it will be considered late if postmarked the next day. Payments made after February 1st, 2024, have penalties added.
There is a secure drop box located outside the main doors for your convenience. Absolutely no cash in the drop box please as we will not be responsible for cash left in the box. I am located at 78 Higby Road (formerly Town Garage Road) in Chazy Lake, co-located with the Town Highway Garage. My office's collection window is the first set of double doors. (Checks written from non-US banks could cause delays and potentially incur additional penalties.) If paying in cash, please have the exact amount, as I may not be able to make change. I also can take credit and debit cards - however there is a convenience fee of 2.45% of payment or $3.99, whichever is higher. No part of these fees will be retained by the Town.
There is a BRAND-NEW feature to be able to pay your current tax bill online, you can go to http://egov.basny.com/dannemora. There is a fee to use credit/debit cards and it will be explained exactly how much before you process any payments, Echeck is also available on the site for a flat fee of $2.00.
If paying in installments, only the first installment is paid to me. All others get mailed directly to the County Treasurer's Office. Please look at your installment coupons for the address. If installments other than the first are mailed to me in error, they will be returned to you. I cannot forward them to Clinton County. Late notice reminders will be mailed April 1st. Any tax payments made after April 31st of ANY tax year must be sent to the Clinton County Treasurer's Office.
I DO NOT collect school tax- please contact your school district for that information. If there is an issue with incorrect information on your bill, contact the County Treasurer's Office. Towns do not print or mail out the bills - the County Treasurer's office is solely responsible for what is on your bill.

Applying for a Marriage License
Documents required to obtain a marriage license are a driver's license or Picture ID and certified birth certificate. A valid passport with your current information can also be used. The individuals must appear personally before the Town Clerk or her deputies. The Fee is $40 and the license is valid 24 hours after applying up to 60 days after.
For Certified Copies of marriage licenses, first ensure you know WHERE you got your license. The license is filed with the clerk who issued it, not necessarily where you got married. For example, if you got married in the Town of Dannemora, but purchased your license in the City of Plattsburgh, you will need to get a copy from Plattsburgh, NOT Dannemora. Cost is $10 per copy. Mailed requests for copies must include Names and date of marriage, a copy of the requester's Official ID to verify authorization to have a copy, and $10 money order. Mail to Town Clerk, 78 Higby Road, Ellenburg Depot NY 12935.
