WARNING: Please be aware that the Town of Newfane is not sending out emails regarding new tax bills. If you receive one, please do not open it or reply. It appears to be a scam. The Newfane Treasurer will not be mailing out new tax bills until July, 2022. If a revised tax bill is necessary for anyone, it will be sent by mail, not by email. The only tax bills that are sent by email are when someone requests a copy be sent that way.
