2018 Real Estate Tax Prepayments

The Town of Maynard will accept prepayment of Real Estate Taxes for Fiscal 2018 as follows:

In order to make a payment, you may:

  1. Come into the Town Hall and pay at the Treasurer-Collector’s counter before NOON on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29, 2017 or
  2. Write a check and mail it to the Town of Maynard at 195 Main Street with a post mark date NO LATER than December 31, 2017 or
  3. Leave your payment in the locked box on the front of the building at 195 Main Street no later than December 31, 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: there is no online service available for this until January 2018, which is too late for tax filing purposes.  ALSO, due to heavy window volume, if you cannot reach us by phone to get the exact amount you owe, the amount of payment may be estimated by using the amount billed for the 1st and 2nd quarters of fiscal 2018 as you cannot pay more than what is due for the second half of fiscal 2018. Over payments MAY NOT be accepted.

Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this process – Happy New Year!
