The next installment is due February 6, 2019.
Interest will be charged at 1% per month if payments are not received in the Treasurer's office by 4pm on April 8, 2019.

Any unpaid installments after May 8, 2019 shall bear interest of one and one half percent (1 1/2%) per month thereafter. Post marks are not accepted at timely payment
Any and all properties with delinquent taxes are subject to a tax sale. DON’T let this happen to you. Please call or come in to pay your property taxes.
Vermont Statutes Title 24 Sec. 3408 - Collection
When an assessment [for water and sewer]remains unpaid for the space of thirty days, the treasurer of the town shall issue a warrant for its collection directed to the collector of taxes, who shall have the same power to enforce the collection and shall proceed in the same manner as is provided by law for the collection of taxes.”
What this means is the Town of Windsor has the right to place your property for tax sale to collect for utility services due.
If you have delinquent taxes, the following is what you are paying in interest over a five year period!
End of year 1: 8% + 16.5% = 24.5%
End of year 2: 24.5% + 18% = 42.5%
End of year 3: 42.5 % + 18% = 60.5%
End of year 4: 60.5% + 18% = 78.5%
End of year 5: 78.5% + 18% = 96.5%
