Please note courtesy letters have been mailed for unpaid water/sewer bills.

Any unpaid water/sewer amounts will be liened according to MGLs on your property beginning in February 2024.

Outstanding Motor Vehicle Excise Tax bills - please call the office at 508-906-3020 if you have questions regarding a MVE bill. If the RMV has notified you that you have an outstanding bill and you cannot perform a transaction, please visit www.masscollector.com to pay this outstanding excise bill with the town’s deputy collector. You may also contact the deputy collector via phone at 1-508-881-3149. Please note that the deputy collector only accepts a money order or a bank check; no personal checks and no cash is accepted. Why? Since you have past due excise tax, you are marked at the Registry of Motor Vehicles website and in order to clear you, funds need to be readily available for the clearing process. We apologize for any inconvenience, however this is for the safety of all employees involved.
