  • There are 237 Towns and 9 Cities that collect real property taxes. Typically, the Town Treasurer or Tax Collector collects real property taxes; however, a town can choose one of five procedures to collect taxes:
    1. If a Town takes no action, the First Constable automatically becomes the Collector of Taxes.
    2. Town may vote to elect a Tax Collector who collects both current and delinquent taxes.
    3. Town may vote to have the Town Treasurer collect taxes; however the Town may also vote to have delinquent taxes collected by the Collector of Taxes, by the Collector of Delinquent Taxes or by the Constable (if neither Collector is elected)
    4. If a town has adopted the Town Manager form of government, it can vote to have the Town Manager collect taxes; however if the town has voted to have the Town Treasurer collect current taxes, then the Town Manages can collect only delinquent taxes and 5. If the town is without a Tax Collector, the Town Selectboard can hire someone to collect what taxes the Town Treasurer does not. For further information, go to
