TOWN TAX RATE SET:
The Town’s 2015 tax rate has been set. The overall rate will fall to $28.68, down $1.76 from last year’s rate. The Town portion has fallen over 10% from $11.94 to $10.72, a decline of $1.22.
As a reminder, the tax rate reflected is the 2015 FY tax rate, not the 2016 rate (Tax rates are set in November of the the fiscal year that they are for), so the tax rate is reflecting the budget that was approved by the voters at this year’s Town Meting in March. The current budget process will be proposing the FY 2016 Town Budget, which will be voted on at March 2016 Town Meeting, and the tax rate for that budget will be set in November of 2016.
Tax bills have been mailed out and are due December 16th, 2015.
For questions relating to your tax bill, please contact Jennifer Trelfa, Town Clerk, at (603) 838-2862.
