DEMAND BILLS:
Once demand bills have been mailed payments that do not include the fees and interest will be returned/sent back for partial payment. (MA General Law states partial payments cannot be accepted for Motor Vehicle Excise.) This will result in additional interest and possibly additional fees.

OUTSTANDING DEMAND BILLS:
Demand Bills that are not paid by their due date will be reported to our deputy collector, Jeffery & Jeffery Inc. Additional fees and interest will be applied and they will issue a Warrant Notice/Bill(s) requesting payment.

If you receive a Warrant Notice/Bill(s), for your Motor Vehicle Excise Tax, from our Deputy Collector you must pay them directly. Contact information is provided below along with their website for additional information and services:
