Receiver of Taxes

Elected Receiver of Taxes 

One of the cornerstones of town government is its authority to  collect, and enforce payment of taxes. The real property tax is the most important source of locally raised municipal revenue.

In towns of the first class, such as the Town of Malta, the collection of taxes is carried out by an elected receiver of taxes.
