I check first whether the collinearity might be due to the fact that one variable (one of the other regressors) is missing in one year. That is to say check whether one entire year as a whole does not enter the estimating sample.
If this is not the case, and for some strange reasons you need to use T-2 time dummies, I would choose which dummies to drop, say the first two years. The remaining coefficients are then interpreted as the time effects relative to the two excluded years.
