    ESTIMATING TAX BILLS? - -  We receive many requests for estimates of future tax bills.  The County and Town budgets that determine the tax rates for the January tax bill are not adopted until November.  School budgets (for the September tax bill) are adopted in May. 
    Another unknown factor is your property tax exemptions; many must be renewed each year.  If you fail to renew, or your qualifications change, (perhaps due to an income change), it will affect the amount due. 
    We strongly recommend you use prior years' tax bills as an approximate minimum.

  In towns with a total population less than 20,000, (Spafford population is 1,686) you may burn tree limbs with attached leaves. The limbs must be less than 6 inches in diameter and 8 feet in length (also referred to as brush). However, this is not allowed from March 16 through May 14 due to the increased risk of wildfires.
