The Tax Collector
Our tax collector is responsible for collecting property, yield (gravel & timber) and current use change taxes. Property tax bills are due semi-annually, in July and December. The tax rate is not set until the fall of each year; therefore, the first bill due in July is estimated on the previous year's tax rate. The tax year runs from April 1 to March 31.

Payments
If you want a receipt for payment, please supply a self addressed, stamped envelope and mail with a copy of your bill. It will be validated and returned to you. Please include the parcel number/tax map and lot number on your check. It is extremely important to include the tax and map ID (on your tax bill) on the memo field of your check. This especially important if you own multiple parcels as the payment may be posted to the wrong parcel.

Change of Address:
If you change your address, be sure to notify the Town via the Selectman's office. Tax records and assessing records will be updated. 

Escrow Accounts
If your taxes are in escrow, it is your responsibility to send a copy of your tax bill to your mortgage company, and to ensure payment. The Tax Collector does not automatically send tax bills to mortgage companies.

Assessing, Abatement's, Current Use, Credits, Exemptions & Tax Appeals By law, the Tax Collector does not have any role in assessing or levying taxes. If you have any questions on assessing, current use, "Intent to Cut" forms, gravel excavation fees, elderly exemptions/deferrals, abatements and/or appeals, please contact the Assessing Office or Selectman's Office  at (603) 744-5055.
