Town and County tax bills are mailed December 31 every year. They are due January 31 without penalties. Each month thereafter will have a 1% penalty added for each month. (Example: Feb. 1 %, March 2%, April 3%, May 4 %.) For the months of April and May an additional $1.00 will be charge to each bill in addition to the %, for second notice’s fees. The Town will accept readable postmark of taxes mailed to our office as pay date. Note: The Town is not responsible for payment lost in mail. Please check with the tax collector if your check does not clear within a reasonable length of time to avoid more penalties.

The item Return taxes found on your tax bills are taxes that were not paid in the previous year. If you have any questions, please contact the Tax Collector.
