How are other towns handling the recent adjustment payments if the some
of the person's 2007 taxes are delinquent? Our municipal taxes were
due in August. I was told by the tax department that the payment
that we received last week has to be applied first to the principal of
the delinquent tax bill but not the interest and penalties.
The remainder of the adjustment goes towards the upcoming taxes due in
November. However, the people still owe penalties and interest on
the amount of taxes that were delinquent even though the state payment
covers the tax. Is this how everyone else is doing it? How
will your delinquent tax collector keep track of the interest that
accrues each month when no more tax is due? Does any more interest
accrue if no more tax is due? What if they never pay it? Does
it keep increasing? We don't have NEMRC's tax administration module
- just the grand list. The DTC does everything manually.
