DELINQUENT TAX AND SEWER INVOICES

Delinquent tax notices can be confusing with the RSAs, and language used. You may not fully understand what it nessesary to keep you in your home. Here is a quick run down of the procedures to help you through the process.

Past due (Pink) reminder notices went out in January. The due date for these past-due amounts is February 17th at noon. The information on these notices was for all outstanding tax debt from 2018 to December 2020.

February 17th after 1:00 PM, certified notices will be created. These notices will either be for a 2020 Lien or a 2018 Deed. Both notices will add fees and penalties to your outstanding debt.

LIENING
You will have 30 days to pay your 2020 tax and sewer bills prior to adding a lien to your property. If the balance is not paid within this timeframe at 12% accrual of interest is added and additional fees for mortgage search and notices sent is executed.
 
DEEDING
You will have 30 days to pay your 2018 tax and sewer bills prior to the Town taking your property by tax deeding. This is a very serious situation to get in and repurchasing your property can be costly. The ability to repurchase your property is offered; however, you will need to pay all the 2018, 2019, 2020 taxes due plus legal and any additional expenses it cost the Town through the process.
