In Readsboro we still mark a book, but we are a small Town. We don’t always have enough payments come in in a day to close out cash receipts and update tax admin so it’s easier to quickly flip through an alphabetized book and find the name and see if it has a bright red paid stamp on it.

Subject: Marking Tax Bills


How many of you mark you tax bills paid for each of your installments due?  We currently hand write in the date they are paid as an easy reference for the office to know if the property owner is current on their taxes.  The problem is the amount of time it takes someone to do this.  If you don't do you use another method other than researching the property owner in NEMRC that is quick and easy?  Do you mark your tax bills a different way?  

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated!
