Motor Vehicle Excise Tax Abatement

If you no longer own the vehicle you received an excise tax bill for or have registered the vehicle out of state, you may be entitled to a motor vehicle excise abatement.  The Assessor’s Office accepts online Motor Vehicle Abatement Applications.  Please visit our Online Submission – Motor Vehicle Excise Abatement Application page to apply.  Once you select the reason you are applying, you will be guided through required abatement documentation.

Please note that the excise bills are due on March 20, 2023.  The bill must be paid on time as applying for an abatement does not stay the collection of excise tax.  If your abatement is approved after the bill is paid, you will receive a refund.


If the bill is not paid by the due date, interest and fees will accrue.

For more information on excise tax and excise tax abatements please visit our Excise Tax Information webpage.

If you have any questions, please call the Assessor’s Office at 978-640-4330
