When are property taxes due?
At Town Meeting the town voted to pay taxes in four installments. (NOTE: There is one payment due date remaining in the 2022/23 fiscal year; May 17, 2023.) The due dates for the 2023/24 fiscal year are: August 16, 2023, November 16, 2023, February 16, 2024, and May 16, 2024.
Can I pay the whole thing at once? Can I pay monthly or quarterly instead?
Yes. You may pay the entire bill at once or, if it is easier to pay in smaller increments, we will accept your payments at any time of the year. Just make sure you meet the deadlines to avoid interest and penalty fees.
What if I can’t make payments by the installment due date?
Even if you make a partial payment it will save you some interest charges. We do accept partial payments. Any remaining balance on an installment will be subject to a 1 percent (1%) or fraction thereof for the first three months and thereafter one and one half percent per month (1 ½%) per month or fraction of, from the due date of each installment.
Can I pay my bill with a credit card?
No. The Town of Granville cannot accept credit or debit cards of any kind.
What if I can’t pay all my taxes by May 16?
Any amount unpaid after May 16, will be subject to a one-time 8% penalty plus 1 percent (1%) or fraction thereof for the first three months and thereafter one and one half percent per month (1 ½%) or fraction of, from the last installment.
Does the Town accept payments that are postmarked by the due date?
Yes. Granville accepts the postmarked date, if we can read it.
I would prefer to pay my tax bill in person. What if I can’t get to the office hours posted on the door?
There is a drop box next to the office door – for check and money orders only. You can drop your payment in the drop box 24/7.
