Town Real Estate & Personal Property Taxes Due
If there’s something worse than paying taxes, it’s paying the interest due on a tax bill because you’re a day late! To help avoid this heart-sinking realization, Linda Sheffield, our friendly Town Tax Collector, is now sending out email reminders that taxes are due. Following is the reminder our reporter received yesterday, Saturday, July 28:
This is just a reminder that Wednesday, August 1, 2012 is the last day to pay taxes that were due July 1, 2012 without incurring a penalty. Payments may be made in person or postmarked on or before August 1, 2012 to be considered timely.
The Tax office hours through Wednesday are:
Monday & Tuesday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Wednesday, 9:00 am to 6:00 pm
If you mail your payment on the last day, be sure to bring it into the Post Office and have it hand-cancelled with the timely date. Failure to do so may result in a late postmark which will result in a 3% interest charge for August.
Remember – Fire District payments are NOT accepted in this office and should be mailed to the appropriate Fire District Tax Collector. (South End Fire District has not mailed bills yet.)
Payments received in this office as of July 27th have been deposited unless there was a problem with the check. Please don’t hesitate to call this office if you notice your check has not cleared or have a question about your payment.
You are receiving this notice because you have requested to be included on a reminder list. If you no longer wish to receive reminder notices please respond to this email and ask to be removed.
