  • § 4793. Warrant against delinquents

    (a) Within 15 days after the expiration of the date or dates, fixed under the provisions of section 4792 of this title for the payment of taxes, the treasurer shall issue a warrant against the delinquent taxpayers for the amount of taxes remaining unpaid. Such warrants shall remain in full force until all the taxes thereon have been fully paid or otherwise discharged. The treasurer shall deliver such warrant, together with a rate bill of such delinquent taxes, to the collector of the town or municipality within it, who shall proceed forthwith to collect such taxes.

    (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) of this section, a municipality may elect, at a special or annual meeting called for that purpose, to have the treasurer issue a warrant within less than 15 days after the expiration of the date or dates, fixed under the provisions of section 4792 of this title for the payment of taxes. A vote under this subsection shall specify the number of days within which the treasurer shall issue the warrant. A vote to shorten the period of time for issuance of a warrant shall remain in effect until rescinded or amended by the voters. For purposes of computing time under this section, "days" means calendar days. (Amended 1997, No. 26, § 2.)
