Important Note Regarding Paying with Your Bank’s Online Bill Pay ServicePlease keep in mind, the Town does not receive payments electronically from bill pay. When scheduling a payment date, it’s important to schedule the payment in advance of the due date to allow enough time for the paper check to be cut and mailed to the town. Your bank will provide an estimate of the number of days to allow for (typically 7-10 days). Payments that are not received by the town by the quarter end due dates will be considered late.
Failure to Receive Tax Bill
Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse the nonpayment of the tax or affect its validity or any proceedings for the collection thereof, according to Rhode Island General Laws, RIGL 44-7-7.
Installment Due DatesInstallments are due by the last day of the following months:
July, October, January and April.
A three (3) business day grace period will immediately follow the last day of each installment period. All payments mailed must be postmarked by the quarter end due date and received by the end of the 3rd business day of the grace period; otherwise, the payment will be considered late and penalties will be assessed.
