Q. When are my property taxes due?
A. In October and May. You have the opportunity to make two installment payments. You will receive ONE bill in late September. The first installment is due in October and the second installment is due in May. Even if you choose to pay in two installments, there will not be a reminder sent out in May so you should retain the second pay stub on the bottom of the bill as your reminder, and mark your calendar. If you have missed any payment due dates, please call the office at 207-589-4318 for the amount due at this time. Interest begins accruing on the unpaid 1st installment the day after it is due.
We do accept partial tax payments and prepayments of any amount on all bills. Payments are always applied to the oldest outstanding tax bill first. We do accept credit and debit cards. Note: There is a 2.5% fee charged by the bank on any debit or credit card payments. Click here to pay on-line.
