How can I pay my tax bill?

Cash, check, or card-based payments can be made in-person during business hours in the Tax Collector’s office. Payments via check can be sent by mail. The Town also utilizes (2) drop boxes on-site, which are checked each business day, for any payments left after-hours. Additionally, for those individuals who prefer to make payments via online banking, the Town accepts payments via BillPay (payment initiated via your financial institution).


Real Estate and Tangible taxes can also be set up on ACH (Automated Clearing House) payments, by which the Town will automatically deduct a quarterly tax amount from a specified bank account. For additional information regarding automatic tax payments, please refer to the “Automatic Tax Payment Information” page.
