Two e-mails during the past week asked whether we’d received our 2005 tax bill. I replied that we had. Both writers, one living at Fish Bay, and the other a mainlander, said they hadn’t seen theirs. Time to call the real estate sales people, was my advice.
The stateside writer said he’d bought a house in late ’05, and "Cannot get through to the tax office through their phone system nor do they answer their e-mail." My guess is the Assessor’s office hasn’t caught up with the sales transaction yet, so it’s possible the previous owner got the bill.
The Governor’s office has said tax bills are due and payable at the end of May and will be considered delinquent if they’re not paid by the end of June..
