The town acts as a collection agent for all the school districts within the town. However- we have no control over the school budgets or tax rates that the school districts set. The school districts are governed by independent elected officials. And taxpayers vote to approve the school budgets each year. The town is required by law to send the school district a check for the amount every property owner owes - whether we receive the payments or not. This helps the schools because they are guaranteed a check whether taxpayers pay their bills or not. If a taxpayer doesn't pay their school bills the town is able to place a lien on the property and we charge interest and penalties.
