We do not offer any discounts for early payment of taxes in Groton.  We tried it one year, the early payment date was only 6 weeks before the due date and it cost us several thousand dollars (which was way more than what it would have cost to borrow for that short time).

Subject: Offering a discount?

Hello all:
 
The Town of Hardwick currently offers a 3% discount if you pay your taxes in full early. We are going to try and eliminate or adjust this offfer at Town Meeting this year. Our Town Manager wanted me to see if any other towns offer a discount and how yours is set up.
 
Do yo offer a discount on all taxes or just on the Municipal?
 
What is the % that you offer and what are the payment terms?
 
Do you offer to everyone or just to the residential (homestead) tax payers?  
 
Thank you all for your help.
