Please be aware the City of Manchester Tax Collectors office does accept partial payments for your Real Estate bills, Waste Water, or Central Business Service District Taxes through out the year.   You can make Weekly, by-Weekly, Monthly payments however you so choose.  You just need to keep in mind if you do not want the taxes to go to lien you would have to be paid in full prior to the lien date.  Also you can make partial payments on any accounts that have already been place in lien, but keep in mind the lien will need to be paid in full prior to the deeded date, which is usually two years and a day from the date the lien was placed. 

General Payment Policies:

  • Post-dated checks cannot be accepted, and will be returned to the taxpayer.

  • Remittances which do not clear the payer’s financial institution shall not be considered paid, and all resultant fees, interest, delinquency penalties, and collection costs shall be charged to the taxpayer.
