In light of recent changes to the federal tax code, the I.R.S. issued a ruling on December 27, 2017 which addresses taxpayers who choose to pre-pay real estate taxes due in Calendar Year 2018. Real Estate taxes paid by December 31, 2017 will be deductible on a 2017 federal 1040 tax return due in April of 2018 IF the municipality has notified you of the taxes you owe for 2018. The tax bills for payments due on February 1, 2018 and May 1, 2018 will be mailed today, Thursday December 28, 2017. The total taxes due for these payment dates have been posted on the Tax Collector's online data base since December 20, 2017. You can access that database to make a payment through the town's website under the "ONLINE BILL PAYMENT" button. Any payment made through the online service before midnight December 31, 2017 will be considered received in Calendar Year 2017. The Tax Collector's Office is open today, Thursday December 28, 2017, until 4:30PM. The Town Hall is closed on Fridays.
