Corinne DiSomma is running for Babylon town receiver of taxes

Corinne DiSomma

DiSomma said that in her 37 years of public service, her greatest accomplishment is the "faith and trust that I have earned from the people of Babylon Town." Among her accomplishments in office, DiSomma points to setting up credit card payment of taxes and more recently, allowing residents to pay online. She said she is excited for the implementation of a new program that will allow residents for the first time to see their tax bill online and pay it at the same time. In the future, DiSomma said she would like to add an email system to the online service, so that residents can get receipts confirming payment emailed to them. The system could also be used to send residents reminders that their taxes are due.

DiSomma, 58, is running unopposed on the Democratic, Republican, Conservative, Independence and Reform party lines. A Babylon Village resident, she is married with an adult son and daughter. DiSomma has an associate degree from Suffolk County Community College. She earned her degree while working full-time as the Babylon Town deputy tax receiver, a job she held for more than two decades. When the town's receiver of taxes, Carol Canning, died in 1999, DiSomma was appointed tax receiver. She is seeking her fifth elected term in office.
