Eden’s property taxes are due in three (3) installments:

November 15 of the current year;
February 15 of the following year; and
May 15 of the following year.

Payments must be postmarked or brought in to the Town Clerk’s office on or before the due dates.  There is a drop box in the door at the Town Clerk’s Office for payments brought in outside of business hours (8:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday through Thursday).  Also available is Direct Debit Tax Payment where the Town can issue an electronic withdrawal from either your checking or savings account from any bank in the United States, applying it to your tax payment on the day it is due.  To sign up, click on the link below, complete the form and return it to the town office.

Direct Debit Tax Payment Form

Any installment due but not paid on or before November 15 and due but not paid on or before February 15 will be subject to a one percent (1%) per month interest charge.

Any property tax still unpaid on May 16 must be paid to the Delinquent Tax Collector (currently the Town Treasurer) and will generate an eight percent (8%) penalty.  Payments will first be applied to the penalty until paid in full, then to the interest until paid in full, then applied to the property tax.
