A MESSAGE FROM THE TAX COLLECTOR - 3/16/20
In response to the COVID-19 emergency the Tax Collectors office will be closed to the public, effective immediately, to encourage people to stay home and comply with "social distancing" recommendations. This public closure falls into alignment with other Towns in our area. The threat and health risks of COVID-19 are great. While these measures may seem dramatic to some it is necessary to support, and maintain, the ability to stay healthy under the current circumstances.
Tax Payments, or Broadband Payments, can be made using the following options:
Sent via US Mail.
Left in the black box Mailbox at the Town Hall (Next to the Blue US Postal Service Mailbox) Please address your envelope: Tax Collector.
Set up as an online bill payment through your bank. Please make sure to include your bill number.
Online using https://unipaygold.unibank.com/default.aspx?customerid=706 (this link can be found on the town website. Click on Committees, select broadband, and then it can be found under Service and Status Information.) Please include your bill number for BB or currently tax payments too.
NO CASH PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME.
If you need a receipt for your payment options are as follows: Request a receipt, include an email address, and I will email you your receipt. Request a receipt, include a self-addressed stamped envelope, and I will mail return a receipt to you.
I am available via phone 978 544-3845, leave a message, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. I will respond timely. Please contact me, do not come to the office, to discuss setting up an appointment if you believe your business can only be done in person.
The duration of this public closure will depend on the recommendation of the State and Town Selectboard. Notices will be updated as new information becomes available. Be well and stay safe everyone. Respectfully,
Jessica J Foote
