What a good question. I have often wondered the same. I’ll be interested to hear what other treasurers do.

Subject: Payments to delinquent taxpayers
Does anyone have a policy concerning payment of funds (i.e. employees or subcontractors) to delinquent taxpayers? Voters are concerned that the Selectboard is paying people to work for the town who also have a delinquent tax bill due. I'm wondering if it would be 'legal' to withhold an amount from the employee's or subcontractor's payment in lieu of delinquent taxes owed.
