Property taxes change

.

Changes have been made to the way property taxes are being billed and collected. The Village of Essex Junction, Essex Junction School District and the Town of Essex have entered into agreements for the Town of Essex to bill and collect all property taxes in the town, including Village of Essex Junction and Essex Junction School District taxes. All tax rates pertaining to Village properties will be listed on the Town of Essex property tax bill. Checks should be made payable to “Town of Essex,” but may be dropped off at either the Village office, 2 Lincoln Street; or the Town office, 81 Main Street.  If you have questions about your property tax bill, call the Town of Essex finance office at 878-1359.

Property tax bills will be mailed by Aug. 15.  The first installment will be due by Sept. 15, and the second installment will be due by March 16, 2015.
