Real Estate Tax Due 11/2/2015

Real estate and personal property tax bills will be mailed before Oct. 1, and will be due at the Tax Collector’s Office on or before Monday, Nov. 2, 2015. The tax rate for FY2016 is $16.68, up 3.15% from last year’s $16.17 and valuations have not changed unless there was a physical change in the property.

Questions about paying your bill should go to the Tax Collector 369-4235, x1, in the Town Offices at 32 Main Street. Questions about your property values should go to the Assessors 369-4235, x5 in the Town Hall.

If you feel that the valuation of your property is incorrect, you may apply for abatement (reduction in the value of the property) to the Assessors. You must file an application for abatement with the Assessors delivered by hand or bearing a USPS postmark on or before Nov. 2, 2015 – we cannot accept applications later than that date.

If you have received a personal exemption (reduction in the amount of tax you pay because of a personal circumstance, ie: blindness, disabled veteran, senior with certain financial limits) in the past or think you may qualify for one this year, the application must be filed on or before December 28, 2015. You must file an application every year, even if your circumstances have not changed.

Forms for all of these are available at the Town Office, Town Hall, on the town website under “Forms and Downloads” or call us at 369-4235, x5 and we will mail it to you. By law, filing dates cannot be extended and we would be glad to help you with the forms.
