Third Quarter Revaluation

Delays Tax Bills in Edgartown

Tax bills in Edgartown for the third quarter of the 2008 fiscal year have been delayed.

In a release, the Edgartown tax collector and board of assessors said the fiscal year 2008 revaluation is taking longer than anticipated, causing the delay. Once the revaluation is finished and Massachusetts Department of Revenue certification has been received, the town can set the tax rate and issue tax bills.

The town expects that it will issue a combined third and fourth-quarter bill at the end of March 2008. Payments will be due 30 days from date of mailing.
