Some residents prefer to pay their municipal bills by using online systems offered by their personal banks. The bank will withdraw the funds immediately from your account and issue a physical check to the Town without the payment coupon. Please note, these checks take 5-7 days to reach the Town, which in some cases causes the payment to be past due, incurring interest and fees.
We do not recommend this type of payment because no bill is remitted with the payment. These checks also cannot be processed by the lockbox facility without the payment coupon and are returned to the Treasurer’s office delaying further credit to your bill.
When processing payments through a Third Party Online Portal please include the following below on the check:
- The type of bill being paid (real estate, excise, sewer, personal property, etc)
- The bill number, year, and account number (remember bill numbers change from year to year)
- The name and address should be on either the check or the check stub
- If we cannot make such determination, we will mail your check back to you and ask that you return it with the appropriate remittance form.
Items returned may be subject to additional charges and interest.
