Tax Collector Details

The Tax Collector’s office is responsible for the billing and collecting of all taxes, interest, and penalties due to the Town, including, but not limited to, Property Tax, Yield (Timber) Tax, Excavation (Gravel) Tax, and Land Use Change Tax.

In Wilmot, Property Tax bills are issued twice per year, and are due by July 1 and December 1.  Interest is accrued on bills not paid by the due date.  All property owners receive a tax bill by mail providing the correct mailing address is associated with the parcel.  Those who sign up for paperless bills in the tax kiosk will only receive the paperless bill via email.  You may view past and current tax bills on the kiosk as well as print out a PDF copy of your bill by selecting ONLINE PAYMENTS, ALL TAX PAYMENTS, enter the search criteria, then select your name or parcel from the results.  This will list your tax bills.  To make a payment you will need to add an item to the cart and follow the instructions.

Yield Tax, Excavation Tax, and Land Use Change Tax bills are issued as they are assessed.

Why Revalue?

Section 7.4 – Why Revalue? Besides the constitutional and statutory requirements, there are many beneficial aspects to completing a revaluation. The nature of the value of real estate is that values change, and the reality is it rarely changes for every property type at the same rate or for the same reasons. Basic fairness in property taxation requires that everyone pays based on the value of their property, and the revaluation resets all property to market value. Also, this being a human activity, it is prone to errors. A revaluation provides the opportunity to correct these errors. There may also be valuable property that has not been included, either through omission from inventory forms, or the completion of non-permitted work. The collection of these additional features of property increases the accuracy of the total value of a municipality and will reduce the tax burden on all taxpayers and abatement requests.

Taxpayer Responsibilities

Section 9.6 – Taxpayer Responsibilities The process of valuation for taxation may potentially be one of the most emotional interactions between government and the people. The assessors have a statutory duty to value all property at market value and taxpayers have a duty to pay taxes to support the municipality. There are numerous requirements of statute and rule for the municipality to adequately meet the need for accurate values. But there are also legal requirements of taxpayers.

In most revaluations, an inspection of the property to be assessed is desired. These inspections help the assessors identify the particular aspects of a property that have value.

Taxpayers have a duty to assure themselves that the information used for taxation of their properties is accurate. However, once the filing deadline for abatement has passed, the taxpayer has lost the right to request abatement for that year.
