The Carlisle Tax Department is responsible for the collection of the municipality’s 1.5% income tax. The municipal tax rate includes 1% tax for general municipal services (effective January 1, 1989) and an additional .5% for police services (effective January 1, 1995). The earnings tax provides for many of the town’s services and major improvement.
