You will then use your Roll Numberwithout the decimal, as the account number. The account number must be a total of 9 digits.
For example:
If you have a Roll # with 4 digits such as 1917 - you would enter 001917000

If you have a Roll # with 6 digits such as 191780 - you would enter 191780000

The property owner's name and address which appears on the property tax statement is in accordance with the latest information and advice which has been made available to the Municipal Office.  If, however, an ownership change has since occurred, please forward the property tax statement to the current owner or return it immediately to the Municipal Office.  It is most important that the Municipal Office be advised promptly of any change of ownership or mailing address in order to ensure that the tax statement is properly forwarded.  It should be noted for future reference that failure to receive a bill does not excuse an owner from responsibility for payment of taxes nor relieve that owner from liability for any later penalty payment.
