IMPORTANT CHANGES REGARDING PROPERTY TAX AND UTILITY BILLS
Beginning July 2013, all tax and utility payments must be received in-hand on or before the close of business on each applicable due date. Payments may be mailed, but must also be received in our office no later than close of business on the appropriate due dates. Payments that are postmarked on the due dates but received late will no longer be accepted as on-time. For due dates that fall on a weekend or holiday, payment must be received on or before the following business day. Office hours are from 8am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
The Town and Village are happy to offer a FREE direct-debit service for tax and utility payments. Once enrolled, payment would be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on each due date as billed. Forms may be submitted as late as 10 days before each due date to become enrolled.
More information about the boards’ decision to change the postmark policy can also be found here . If you have further questions about due dates and payment options, please call 802-244-5858.
