Approved forms of payment

  • Taxpayers may bring with them a completed and signed personal check, money order, bank check, or certified check made payable to the Greater Amsterdam School District. No cash will be accepted. Taxpayers will be provided with a receipt acknowledging a check and tax stub(s) were received. However, the receipt will not include the amount paid. NERIC, which processes all payments, will issue those receipts by mail.
  • GASD school taxes can now be paid online with credit or debit cards. (Find instructions about how to make those online payments here.) Please be advised there is a site service fee over and above the amount due to GASD that goes directly to the third party processor. Please review your payment carefully before submitting.
  • E-check payments are now available at gasd.org for a flat fee of $4.95 per transaction up to $2,500. Follow the initial steps for making a payment. When your bill payment is in your cart, choose “Make a payment.” Select e-check payment, and you will be asked for your routing and account numbers. Please review your payment carefully before submitting.
