Payment deadline extended to accommodate the state-wide delay
Pawtucket- Mayor Donald R. Grebien announced that Pawtucket car owners can expect to receive their car tax bills beginning September 25th. The majority of residents will see changes to their car tax bills following the passage of the car tax cut by the General Assembly and the Governor. While discussions were occurring at the state level throughout the spring, the City decided to delay issuing its bills to avoid confusion and the need to issue adjustments.
“This long overdue tax cut provides needed relief for hardworking taxpayers,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “The City has extended its payment deadline to give residents enough time to prepare. If residents have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.”
The deadline for first and second quarter payments of the car tax bills will be extended to November 30th to accommodate the delay. Taxpayers will not be assessed an interest penalty due to the delay in issuing the Motor Vehicle Excise Tax bills if they are paid on time, by the extended deadline. Information on these changes and the extended deadline will be included in all car tax bills and the City will continue to publicize the extended deadline.
