In the years I worked for the big daily, I could walk the few blocks through downtown Syracuse to City Hall.
When I free-lanced and then worked at Lowe’s, my schedule was loose enough that I could make the trip from the Little Bitty in the city neighborhood of Eastwood to the official location to pay my quarterly taxes to Syracuse and Onondaga County in person.
Now that my weekdays are spent working for the Liverpool Public Library with hours that more closely align with those of the folks that work behind the tax counter, I’d decided this month to send my check off by mail.
I dutifully addressed my envelope to the P.O. Box listed on the two account slips.
My tax check will arrive to be collected in Binghamton, N.Y., a nice enough city some 60 miles south of Syracuse.
How do you pay and where do you send your taxes? Does your locality do odd things? Do you use snail mail and checks for anything anymore?
