Do NOT have these payments mailed to our Boston address as they can not be processed without the actual tax bill payment stub at the lock box payment center.

Please note that it may take several days for your bank to issue payments utilizing the online/telephone services so you must allow extra time for your payment to reach us within the 10 day grace period.
