  • Payment period (60 days)
  • Application for Senior Tax Relief period
  • Payment in lieu claim period

Fall

  • Monthly penalty applied to any account with outstanding balance

Spring

  • Monthly penalty applied to any account with outstanding balance
  • Accounts with outstanding balance become in arrears (January 1st)
  • List of properties in tax arrears posted at the Town Office (March 31st)

*The process includes letters mailed to the property owner and the offer to enter into a payment plan agreement. The process may result in the sale of the property by public auction.
