Tax Collector

The City Collector's Office processes Real Estate, Personal Property/Tangible, and Motor Vehicle taxes. The office also is a depository for all city receipts. The determination of the amount of tax you pay (valuation, levy, exemptions) is made by the City Assessor.

Please see our Payment Information and FAQ page for information on:

Bill Distribution:

Real Estate and Tangible Tax Bills are mailed annually in late June, so if you do not have a bill by Independence Day, contact our office for assistance. State law does not require the City to send a tax bill.

Motor Vehicle Excise Tax:

Mayor Donald R. Grebien announced that Pawtucket car owners can expect 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, the City decided to delay issuing its bills to avoid confusion and the need to issue adjustments. The City has issued its bills and resident can expect to receive them beginning September 25th.  

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.
