There are many reasons why you may not have received a Motor Vehicle Excise tax. They may be any of the following:
- The Registry of Motor Vehicles does not have your current mailing address.
- Your registration has expired.
- You haven’t been billed yet. (Note: the Registry commits up to 12 billing cycles in a calendar year.)
- The U.S. Postal Service has misplaced your bill.
Please be advised that under M.G.L. Chapter 60A, Section 2, “Failure to receive an excise notice shall not affect the validity of the excise.” A person who does not receive a bill is still liable for the excise plus any interest and/or charges accrued. If you have not received a bill or think you have an outstanding excise tax, please feel free to contact the Collector’s Office and inquire.
