Late Payment Penalty and Application of Payments
A late payment penalty of 1.25% per month is added to any outstanding amount on the 1st day of each month until paid. Payments made on your account are applied first to any outstanding interest and penalty and then to the oldest outstanding taxes.
Please ensure that the Town has your current mailing address on file. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve you from the responsibility of payment of taxes or penalty. A Change of Address form can be downloaded below.
