If it's a municipality it will have its own taxing authority and assessable base.
In fact I looked and it does, just under $0.17/100 of assessed value. That's the rate for the sections of it in both counties.

What it doesn't have is a differential which lowers the County property tax paid. With the Town rate so low I'm guessing that the Counties handle a lot of the functions many municipalities do like plowing or road work.

I'm embarrassed that I don't know and only know one of its elected officials.
