Tax bills are mailed by mid-July. One bill is issued per tax year and is payable in quarterly installments, except for bills less than $100, which are due in full by the 1st Quarterly Payment due date. No grace period is granted beyond the due dates, and a late penalty will begin to accrue on the day after the due date if the quarterly payment is not received or postmarked on or before the due dates.
Note: Please contact the Tax Collection office if you did not receive a tax bill. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt the taxpayer from paying what is due (see RIGL §44-7-7).
