Applications are due in the Assessor’s Office at the end of March every year. If you would like to learn if you qualify, review the Personal Exemption Information (PDF) or see the applications on the Applications and Forms page.
Motor Vehicle Excise Tax Abatements
Did you know that you pay an excise tax on your vehicle each year for the entire calendar year? If you transfer ownership of the vehicle and either cancel or transfer the plates to another car, you may be entitled to an abatement (refund) of the balance of the tax paid for the year through December. Also, active military personnel stationed in Massachusetts whose domicile is in another state are exempt from Massachusetts excise tax.
To learn more about your options, view the Motor Vehicle and Trailer Excise Handout (PDF). The Motor Vehicle Excise Abatement Application (PDF) is also available. Applications must be accompanied with the correct supporting documents to qualify for the tax abatement.
