At the April 21, 2020 Select Board meeting, the Board voted to adopt three local options offered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that impact timing of the payment of tax bills.

The key changes are:

  • Real Estate Tax Bill due date has moved from May 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020.
  • Any bill with a due date after March 10, 2020 are payable before June 30, 2020 with no interest or penalty
  • Application deadline for exemptions and deferrals has moved from April 1 to June 1, 2020.
