Payment of Past Due Taxes: Within one month of foreclosure, only cash and certified checks will be accepted for payment of past due taxes. No personal checks or credit card payments.
In order to determine April 1, 2017 valuations for the 2017-18 Tax Bill, the Assessing Department will be conducting inspections over the next few months to update property record cards and to follow up on properties with building permits obtained through April 1, 2017. Inspections will be conducted periodically, as our schedule permits, over the next few months which will include taking digital pictures of the building(s). If an interior inspection is necessary, we will request entrance at that time. If you are unavailable, we will leave notification to set up an appointment.

A few years ago the Town of Readfield changed the map and lot designations on all pieces of property. If you have a map and lot that you can not find use this conversion chart which will allow you to look up a piece of property in the commitment book and using the conversion chart, find the new map and lot numbers. This will also allow you to find the property on our new GSI maps that are also loaded here on our web site.
