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%
Reminder: If you have not made arrangements to pay your delinquent taxes time is running out! Tax sale proceedings are underway for the sale of any property that has delinquent taxes due. Don't let this happen to you!
