Payment Help

The following options are available to assist with real and personal property taxes payments. Note: registered motor vehicle bills are not included in these payment options.

Prepayment Program

The Prepayment Program is a voluntary program in which a taxpayer is given an estimate of a tax bill and is allowed to pay before the actual bill is created. The taxpayer can choose when and how much to pay before the actual bill is due. The taxpayer must notify the tax office each year that he wishes to participate in the program. All prior years taxes must be paid in full.

Bank Draft Program

This program allows taxes to be paid through a monthly bank draft prior to the bill becoming delinquent. Initially the taxpayer must apply in person at the Tax Office in Hillsborough. A new application must be submitted each year to participate. Print an application.

Post-Billing Payment Plan

This plan is provided to assist with payments after the tax bills have been issued. The Tax Office will work with the taxpayer to establish a payment plan of periodic payments to insure that the bill is paid in full before the delinquent date (after January 5th).
