What are the costs?
Convenience Fees
Online payments will incur a convenience fee. Town of Sandwich receives only your bill payment amount. Convenience fees cover various administrative costs associated with accepting payments and are non-refundable.

The non-refundable convenience fee when using credit cards is a percentage-based or flat rate fee that varies depending on the card type and the bill you are paying. The convenience fee is automatically calculated based upon the type of credit card used and the dollar amount of the bill being paid and is shown on the payment page before you submit your payment for processing. The convenience fee when using an Electronic Check is $ 0.40.

The convenience fee amount is automatically calculated and is shown on the payment page before you submit your payment for processing. Convenience fees will appear as a separate charge from the bill amount on your credit card and bank statements.

If there is an error in the Credit Card charge, please contact Invoice Cloud at (877) 256-8330 x2700.


About the Tax Collector's Office:
The Tax Collector is responsible for the printing, mailing and collection of all tax bills issued by the Town of Sandwich. These include: Motor Vehicle Excise Tax, Boat Excise Tax, Real Estate Tax and Personal Property Tax. The Tax Collector's office issues and maintains a record of Municipal Lien Certificates to be filed at the Registry of Deeds in Barnstable. This office also collects fees for and issues all Transfer Station Stickers and Beach Stickers.

Real Estate and Personal Property tax bills are issued semi-annually but are collected quarterly. This means four times a year, not four equal payments.  The bills are mailed on June 30th and Dec. 31st. Each mailing contains two bills with due dates of: Aug. 1st, Nov. 1st, Feb. 1st, and May 1st. No reminder is sent between quarters. By state law, interest is charged on any and all late payments - even bills that have been lost in the mail or never received due to transfer of ownership. Copies of bills are available in the office if anyone should misplace their tax bill.

The Tax Collector's office also issues and maintains a record of Municipal Lien Certificates to be filed at the Registry of Deeds in Barnstable. This office also collects fees for and issues all Transfer Station Stickers and Beach Stickers and Shellfish License.
