Latest Happenings Around Town

 to everyone who made Plymouth Day
 such a success this year.  
All your hard work is very much appreciated

2017 Taxes
A quick reminder that all 2017 property taxes must be paid 
by Friday, July 13th in order to avoid lien fees.
Please note that payments will be applied to the oldest tax liability first

Things you should know about municipal tax liens: 
1.    The Tax Collector has a duty by law  to place tax liens on properties when the tax remains uncollected. This includes unpaid interest and fees. 
2.    Tax Liens are recorded at the Registry of Deeds. This recording is public knowledge, and most credit bureaus keep track of liens filedThese same credit bureaus do not keep track of the discharge of these liens. This can affect your credit rating. 
3.    Lien costs are expensive. Currently, certified mail costs are $6.67 each. Recording fees are $38.00. These costs are added to and become part of the tax. Not paying them is not an option. 
4.    The State of Maine assessment date is April 1st each year. If you sold your property after April 1st, the tax bill was assessed in your name. This is the law. This means that if you sold after April 1st, regardless of current ownership of the property, the tax is your responsibility. If the taxes remain unpaid, you will need to either pay the tax yourself or enforce any agreement made with the buyer. Otherwise,  the lien will be placed in your name
