Making Government Easy
September 24, 2008
The Office of the Westchester County Clerk continues to find innovative uses of technology to improve both constituent services and internal operations. On September 24, 2008 the County Clerk’s Office began receiving and receipting New York State Tax Warrant satisfactions electronically. The e-filing of approximately one hundred satisfactions a week supplements e-filing of an average of over four hundred and forty initial filings a week which began in June of 2006. A tax warrant is a document filed by New York State in a County Clerk’s Office to serve as a judgment against a taxpayer.
“This e-project saves tax dollars and protects the environment,” shared Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni who is also partnering with other state and federal offices on various e-filing initiatives. “E-filings are paperless and can be reviewed and indexed much more quickly than paper filings,” continued Idoni, “resulting in fewer staff hours required to process these filings.” This accomplishment was the result of a partnership between the Office of the Westchester County Clerk and The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance and was facilitated by the Westchester County Department of Information Technology.
