There has been significant interest by taxpayers regarding pre-payment of taxes for the balance of this fiscal year, and the first half of fiscal year 2019 that begins in July. Tax bills for the balance of fiscal year 2018 (3rd and 4th quarter) which ends on June 30th are available on line and have been mailed. Residents are encouraged to use our online payment option at https://www.invoicecloud.com/wellesleyma to avoid waiting in line at Town Hall.
For those who would like to come in person to the Treasurer Collector’s Office, it is open this week from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Residents may also insert payments in the drop box on the driveway outside the front of Town Hall. Lastly, residents may mail payments, however they must be received (not postmarked) prior to the last business day of this calendar year, which is Friday, December 29th.
Upon receiving guidance from the State Department of Revenue this morning, we are no longer accepting payment for the first half of the fiscal year 2019 taxes. To do so requires certain steps the Town must take for which there is not legally sufficient time. Residents who have already made pre-payments do not need to take any further action, and those payments will be applied to their accounts for fiscal year 2019. Questions may be directed to: Treasurer/Collector’s Office at 781-431-1019, ext. 2266.
