The City's tax year runs from July 1st through June 30th. Tax bills are mailed semi-annually with payments due on September 15th and March 15th.  Interest begins to accrue the day after the due date on any unpaid balance for that period. 

Liens are placed on any real estate account that has a balance remaining come mid-June.  Property owners then have 18 months from the lien recording date to pay the balance in full before foreclosure occurs.

Payments may be made by cash, check or debit/credit cards.*  Check and credit card payments can be mailed to the Treasurer's Office at 27 Pine St., Lewiston ME 04240.
