Motor Vehicle Excise

Motor Vehicle values and the tax rate is set by the Registry of Motor Vehicles and sent to the town on record at the registry. Bills are mailed by the town-approved vendor in January and are due 30 days later. Exception: A few months after purchasing a car you will receive a partial-year bill. 
If you sell a car before the year is up apply at the Assessor’s office for an abatement which must be accompanied by 1) Proof that the license plate has been transferred or returned to the registry and 2) Proof that the car has been sold or disposed of.
