If I apply for an abatement, do I still have to pay my taxes on time?

Filing an application does not stay the collection of your taxes.  In some cases, you must pay the tax when due to appeal the assessors' disposition of your application.  Failure to pay the tax assessed when due may also subject you to interest charges and to collection action. To avoid any loss of rights or additional charges, you should pay the tax as assessed.  If an abatement is granted and you have already paid the entire year's tax as abated, you will receive a refund of any overpayment.
