Tax Collector Responsibilities:
- Tax Collector will collect Personal Property and Quarterly Real Estate Tax Bills each year on August, November, February, and May. *
- Collections of Boat Excise and Motor Vehicle Excise tax bills annually, based upon RMV notifications. (New boats and vehicles bills will be collected throughout the year.)*
*Collector will make every effort to send out reminders for past due bills prior to sending out a DEMAND Notice.
- Payment of the Real Estate is due the beginning of August, November, February, and May.
- Payment of the Personal Property is due the beginning of February and May.
- Payment of the Motor Vehicle excise is due 30 days from the date the excise bill is issued.
- Under MGL Chapter 60A, all Massachusetts residents who own and register a motor vehicle must annually pay a motor vehicle excise. Also, under MGL Chapter 59, Section 2, it is important to note that every motor vehicle, whether registered or not, is subject to taxation, either as excise or personal property, for the privilege of road use, whether actual or future.
- According to Chapter 60A, section 2 of the Massachusetts General Laws, “Failure to receive notice shall not affect the validity of the excise”. A person who does not receive a bill is still liable for the excise plus any interest charges accrued. Therefore, it is important to keep the Registry, local assessors, and the post office informed of a current name and address so that excise bills can be delivered promptly. All owners of motor vehicles must pay an excise tax; therefore, it is the responsibility of the owner to contact the local assessor if he/she has not received a bill.
