Important Instructions Regarding Your Motor Vehicle Excise Tax Bill
Do not ignore your bill, even though you may have moved from N Attleboro, sold, traded or otherwise disposed of the vehicle which this bill represents. If you ignore your bill, it will continue to accrue charges and penalties for which you will be held responsible. Also, if the bill continues to remain outstanding, it will result in the eventual suspension of your driver's license and/or vehicle registration. If you are in doubt regarding your bill, you should contact the assessor's office at 508-699-0117.
Please note: The bill must be a minimum of $10 in order to file for a partial abatement. No abatement shall be granted for less than $5, and no bill shall be reduced below $5. Keep in mind that your bill should be paid as assessed and a refund will follow provided the abatement is granted.
