First Auto Excise Tax Bills For 2015 Are Mailed

The first mailing of 2015 Automobile Excise Tax bills that were mailed out on March 9, 2015 and are due on April 8, 2015.

All payment must be received in the Collector’s office by this date otherwise a 12% interest will be assessed to the bill along with a $15.00 demand.  This demand must be paid within the fourteen days in order to avoid the bill being turned over to our Deputy Collector, Kelley & Ryan Associates, Inc. for additional fees and charges.  If you do not pay our Deputy Collector your name will be submitted to the Registry of Motor Vehicles for non-renewal of license and registration with an additional fee.

The assessment is based on a $25.00 per $1,000 dollar valuation.

Anyone who has received a bill for vehicles that they have sold, traded or junked should apply with their bills, plate cancellation receipt and whom the vehicle was sold, traded or given to as well as their new registration to the Board of Assessors. Also taxpayers who have moved out of state will need a copy of their Massachusetts plate cancellation receipt and a copy of their out of state registration in order to apply to the Board of Assessors for an adjustment.

Please make sure to include your payment coupon along with your check in the envelope that the City has provided for mailing your payment.

Please mail seven days prior to the due date so that your payment will arrive in a timely manner.

Payments should be mailed to the City of Pittsfield, Collector’s Office, P. O. Box 981063 Boston, Ma. 02298-1063, or you can pay your bill in person at the Collector’s Office, City Hall, first floor, Monday through Friday 8:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
