Tax Bill Information

How Your Taxes Are Calculated
Your taxes are calculated using the assessed value of your property as provided to the Town by the Municipal Property and Assessment Corporation (MPAC) and multiplying by the current tax rate.
The interim tax bill is based on approximately fifty percent (50%) of your previous year's property taxes. The final tax bill is issued once the current year's budget is approved and the County and Education tax rates are finalized. The amount of the interim bill is deducted from your final tax bill.
