– When are property taxes due?
Property tax bills are mailed a minimum of 30 days prior to the first installment due date. Annual taxes are divided into four equal payments and are due August 15, November 15, March 15 and May 15. Late payments are charged interest of 1% per month for the first 3 months and 1 1/2% per month thereafter. An 8% penalty is assessed on any taxes not paid by May 15. Postmarks (US, FedEX and UPS) are accepted as timely payments.

Timely Tax Payment Clarification
***Important Policy Change***
The Town of Westford currently accepts postmarks (USPS, UPS & FedEx) for tax payments. Given the electronic age we are in, the Town occasionally receives checks directly from financial institutions after a taxpayer initiates the payment. This type of payment may be known as Bill Pay.
These payments are mailed to the Town directly from the financial institution however the envelope does not bear a postmark. Effective July 1, 2015 the Town of Westford will acknowledge this type of payment based on the date the payment is received at the Town Office.
The Town highly recommends that if you remit payment using this method, you contact your financial institution to determine the appropriate lead time to ensure your tax payment is timely.
