FAQs - School Taxes


Where can I pay my tax bill?
Tax payments cannot be accepted at the School’s Business Office. School and property taxes are billed annually on one statement dictating the amount you owe. Some property owners have their financial institution pay on their behalf. For those that pay their own, make payments to your town’s Tax Collector. Access the following site for your town’s contact information:
