Taxes are based on the assessed value of land and buildings. The tax rate is set annually around September 1st based on the assessment as of April 1st of that year and tax bills are sent to the owner of record as of April 1st.

The tax year is July 1st through June 30th. Taxes are payable on November 10th (1st half) and May 10th (2nd half). The November payment is for July 1st through December 31st and the May payment is for January 1st through June 30th. Questions on tax payments, call 737-4305 x. 202 or email taxcollector@richmondmaine.com.

Tax liens for non-payment are placed in mid-July following the September commitment date. Tax liens mature 18 months later resulting in automatic foreclosure by State law. Tax liens may affect your credit rating.

The Town accepts partial payments on taxes at any time with one exception, that exception is foreclosures. (December - February) At that time, payments on current taxes must be made in full. In addition, payments during that time must be cash, money orders or bank checks only on foreclosures.

Throughout the rest of the year, the Town encourages taxpayers to make partial payments if it is helpful to them.

Interest accrues on a daily basis on past due taxes. When payments are made, they are applied to lien charges (if any) first, then to interest due, and then to taxes (oldest outstanding taxes first).

Mobile Homes

Taxes on mobile homes are treated the same as real estate. The only exception is when a mobile home is being moved out of town. When that happens, State Law requires that ALL taxes must be paid in full, including the current year even if they have not been committed or billed. In order for the home to be moved, the owner must get a signed release from the tax collector stating that all taxes are paid. 

Tax Exemptions and/or Valuation Questions go to the Assessor's Page.
