The Town Receiver of Taxes, Taya Pryce, has issued the following: Due to the current pandemic, we are asking (although we are open to the public and will be collecting payments in person) that you please consider using one of the following options when making your tax payment:
Utilize the Night Drop Box located outside of the Town Hall building, or
Mail your payment, or
Use the on-line payment option ad pay by credit card (Note: Payment by credit card incurs a 3.5% convenience fee plus $.50 for the transaction)
Doing so not only ensures your safety, but it also ensures the safety of others entering and exiting the building and the safety of Town Hall employees.
Receipts will be sent out for all payments received during this time.
