Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is the due date of taxes?
A. In 2017, property taxes are due Saturday, October 21st. The Town Clerk’s Office will be open on this Saturday to collect taxes. The due date is voted annually at Town Meeting and does therefore change from year to year. Ordinarily a Saturday near the middle of October is chosen.
Q. When will I receive my tax bill?
A. Tax bills are ordinarily mailed in early August.
Q. What period of time does my tax payment cover?
A. Taxes are billed annually to fund the Town fiscal year of January 1st through December 31st and the School District fiscal year of July 1st through June 30th. Therefore, your tax payment in October of a given year contributes to the budget years, of both the Town and the School District, that are currently in progress at the time of your payment.
