Town forms Tax Club
for monthly payments

Buxton has initiated a Tax Club that allows property owners to pay 10 monthly installments due on the 28th beginning in August and running through May 2025.

“Failure to make timely payments will result in your removal from the Tax Club,” the town wrote on its website. “If you are removed due to non-payment, interest will automatically begin to accrue on any overdue balance.”

For more information, call Elizabeth Pratt, tax collector, at 929-5200.

Town dedicates
report to Pratt
