Property Taxes

For Tax Bill amounts, please dial 207-642-3062 for the Deputy Tax Collector.

Real and Personal property taxes are assessed, by state law on April 1 of each year. In other words, whoever owns the property as of that date is considered responsible for the taxes on that property for the coming fiscal year; July 1 of the current year through to June 30th of the following year. The Assessing Department and the Town's Assessor are responsible for assigning property values. Once values are set they are committed from the Assessor to the Tax Collector, usually around the first of September of each year. Tax bills are then able to be prepared for the convenience of the Town of Standish taxpayers, usually by the first of October. Annual tax bill amounts are payable in two equal installments with the first due usually on November 15th and the second due on May 15th of the following year. For all years we provide copies of tax bills in "PDF format" which you can search and print as needed. We also offer a service call Citizen's Self Service which allows a taxpayer to look up tax information in real time. Needed for the current variant of the State Circuit Breaker refund program, you can search the file for your name, address, map/lot, and print the page on your own printer.[Caution - When printing your bill be sure to print only the page(s) you want to print; just selecting the default (print all) will mean you'll print all the bills.] If you have misplaced your tax bill or need an additional copy, stop by the town hall where we can print you a new one.
