How to Understand a Property Tax Bill

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

November 15th of the current year,
February 15th and May 15th of the following year.

Payments must be postmarked or brought into the Town Clerk’s office on or before the due dates.  There is a mail slot to the left of the front door at the Town Clerk’s Office for payments made outside of business hours (8:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and Friday from 8:00 until 12:00 noon). There is an also a large metal gray standing box in front of the office where payments can be made at any time.

Direct Debit is also an option for paying property taxes. The Town can initiate an electronic withdrawal from a checking or savings account from any bank in the United States and apply 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.  Forms must be submitted at least 10 days prior to any property tax due date.

Direct Debit Tax Payment Agreement

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.  Any payment made after the property taxes are delinquent 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.
