I just bought a new home; when will the tax bill be issued in my name?

A New Homeowner Form (PDF) is available from either the Assessor’s or Tax Collector's Office. Upon receipt of the deed from either the owner or Registry of Deeds and after the next January 1st assessment period begins (Bills due the following August 1st), the bills will be issued in the new owner’s name.


Real Estate Tax bills are due August 1, November 1, February 1, and May,1. Any property owner who is concerned that they did not receive a bill (See FAQ #3) is encouraged to contact the Tax Collectors Office at 978-369-5557.
