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:

  • ITOP
  • Methods of Payment
  • Interest Calculation

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:

The City will delay sending out its car tax bills until the statewide car tax phase out legislation is approved. Traditionally, each year residents receive their vehicle tax bills at the end of June or beginning of July, along with their real estate bills. With ongoing car tax relief discussions taking place at the State House, the City will be delaying the mailing of Motor Vehicle Excise Tax bills pending the passage of final legislation. Any changes made on the state level will alter the calculations of bills. Rather than issuing vehicle tax bills now, and potentially overcharging taxpayers, the City will not send out its bills until later this summer.
