Penalties and interest, once applied, are not waivable under any circumstances’ in accordance with Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 60 Section 15, the Collector has no authority to waive fees or interest.
 
For New Home Owners in Town please note that Massachusetts State Law requires the Real Estate Tax bill to be issued to the record owner as of each January 1.

Please call the Assessor’s office at 508-747-1620 X10296 to ask for an “In Care Of” (C/O) address so the bill can be sent to you. Often the Post Office may return an “In Care Of” address but we can try and get it to you.

Fiscal 2020 and Prior:

Water & Sewer Demands 2020 & 2019 are due 7/29/2020.

Starting the week of September 14th and continuing for the next 7 weeks the water department will be hanging "Shut Off Tags" to those properties whose Water and/or Sewer bills remain unpaid from Fiscal 2020.  The Water Hanger Tag includes an additional fee of $25.  Cash or money order are required for payment, no personal or business checks.  There are almost 600 customers that remain unpaid so if you are one of them I would recommend that you pay prior to the Hanger Tag happening.

Real Estate and Personal Property 2020 Demands are due 7/29/2020; tax takings will be the next step
