I have moved to another town within Massachusetts but I'm still being billed by my old town.
What should I do?
You may be entitled to an abatement if:

You have moved before January 1st of the tax year
AND notified the Registry of Motor Vehicles AND your insurance
company of your change of address. Notification of the Post Office is not sufficient for an abatement.  

In order to get your tax moved from the billing town to your new town (an abatement), you must file for the abatement
with the Board of Assessors of the
originating town.

The Assessors may require a copy of your cover selection sheet from your insurance company showing the
CHANGE OF ADDRESS DATE.

Without proof of the change of address date in a form prescribed by STATE REGULATION your abatement could be
denied.

It is important to understand that excise taxes are based on the data supplied by
you to the Registry of Motor Vehicles.
If you move and have failed to notify the Registry of your change of address you will be billed at your old address.

There are circumstances when you have changed your address on ether your drivers license or registration and have
failed to changed the other. The Registry will not allow two different residential addresses. This can cause a problem.
Make sure all your registrations and drivers license have the correct address. Your registration and license address can
be changed online using the Registry of Motor Vehicle's web sight,
