A Message from the Tax Collector’s Office: Important Tax Information

The Special Town Meeting to review and accept the budget and determine the mill rate, is scheduled for December 20, 2017.   If the budget passes and a new mill rate is determined at this meeting, the real estate, personal property, and motor vehicle bills will be issued with a due date of February 1, 2018.

If you itemize your federal income taxes and are concerned about the payment of your real estate taxes during 2017, please note that you can pay the same amount as the 1st installment (July) by December 31; then when the new taxes bills are issued, you will receive a supplemental bill to make up the difference if there is a new mill rate approved on December 20th. This is more important this year as the concern now is that the “proposed federal tax bill” that is being discussed and voted on in Congress, could eliminate that option in 2018.
