The Tax Collector’s office is down the left hallway on the first floor of Town Hall, 27 Main Street.  After the Assessor has completed the Grand List and the Town budget is finalized, the amount of funds necessary to finance the Town are divided by the Grand List to determine the mill rate. The 2019 Grand List mill rate is 11.6.  Your property assessment (70% of fair market value) is then multiplied by the mill rate to determine your tax.  The Tax Collector then generates tax  bills for Real Estate, Business Personal Property and Motor Vehicle taxes.

We are pleased to announce that tax payers can now pay their taxes online by credit card. This service is available online only and not in person at the Town Hall.  
Visit and use Code 1759 or telephone 800-2PAY-TAX.  A fee is charged for this service.  Please note your Grand List Number when paying by credit card.
