The Finance Department oversees all financial activity of the town. Through the maintenance of independent records and by following well-defined procedures, the Finance Department documents the flow of money into and out of municipal accounts. The Department tracks revenue and expenditures and is involved in the annual budget process. The Department is also responsible for submitting reports to the Department of Revenue (DOR) including the town’s annual Schedule A and the year-end balance sheet which is utilized by the DOR to certify the town’s free cash. The Finance Director also works with the Board of Assessors and the Principal Assessor to prepare and submit the town’s Tax Recapitulation Sheet (Tax Recap) to the DOR. The Tax Recap is the official document which allows the town to set its tax rate.

The Town has received the 4th quarter payment for the room occupancy tax and the meals tax.  The 4th quarter payment is for the months of February, March and April.  The Finance Department was pleasantly surprised by the numbers, the recent harsh winter was expected to hit our room and meals tax numbers.  While the meals tax is down for the quarter it is not down as much as was expected.

The room tax payment of $106,894 is an increase of 11.0% over the $96,341 we received in June 2014.  For fiscal year 2015 we received $1,980,268 which is an increase of $128,382 or 6.9% from last year’s total of $1,851,886.
