2020 Taxes

September 29 2020

Please be advised that September 30th, 2020 is the last date you can pay property taxes before the first penalty of the year is applied. The July 1st penalty of 8% was waived for the year of 2020 by Town Council in order to offer people some relief during the financial struggles presented at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. On October 1st, 2020 a 4% penalty will be applied to all outstanding balances. See below for payment options.
