2017 REAL ESTATE TAXES NOTICE
The Town Office has just finished tax billing for 2017. The Board of Selectmen committed the taxes on Wednesday, August 2nd at their regular meeting. The 2017 Commitment Book for Real Estate and Personal Property, as well as all the tax bills have been uploaded to the website. This is the first year we have published tax bills online. After many requests from tax payers, and various agents such as realtors, attorneys, title companies etc., we thought we'd try it out. This should aid in situations where a tax payer, or a bank/title company etc might need a bill for a refinance, sale, or other when the office is closed. We get hundreds of requests each year for duplicate tax bills that have been misplaced, or not received, or for a sale. The tax bills will be going in the mail on August 9th. Please be expecting your bill likely between August 14-25 depending on your location. If you do not receive it, please download it from here, or call us (we may not have a current mailing address). Please keep us updated with changes that need to be made to your accounts here to include, name changes, address changes, or anything else you may think would be helpful to us.
To access the tax bills online, please click here or visit the 'Assessing' tab, drop the menu to 'Tax Bills' and read the instructions provided.
