Property Tax Bills
The Town of Windsor sends out two property tax bills a year (an Interim Bill and a Final Bill). Please note that the Interim Bill is due the last business day of May of each year and the Final Bill is due the last business day of September of each year.
Water bills are invoiced quarterly and you will now find a sewer rate charge on your water bill. Please note, this charge used to be included in the property tax rate but is now reflected on your water bill because it is based on water consumption.
Please note, for public transportation between Windsor and various other locations, the service is provided by Maritime Bus.
The bus stop location for Windsor is located in Falmouth at the "Falmouth Circle K (Irving)", a 5 minute walk to Windsor's downtown core.
