When is payment due?

Payment of the motor vehicle excise is due within 30 days from the date the excise bill is issued (not mailed).

Note: A person who does not receive an excise tax bill is still liable for the excise plus any interest charges accrued. Therefore, it is important to keep the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles and the United States Postal Service informed of your current name and address so that excise bills can be delivered promptly. Vehicle owners who do not receive an excise tax bill should contact the Office of the Treasurer/Collector at 508-760-6131 for a copy of their bill.
