Personal Property Taxes

Personal Property bills are issued 4 times a year and are typically due on August 1st, November 1st, February 1st and May 1st. Bills are due 30 days from the date of mailing. Postmarks are not accepted. Interest accrues at a rate of 14% per annum. After the due date, interest starts from the due date as provided by the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 


Pine Acres and Lake Dean Campgrounds

If you have a camper on site at either campground on January 1st of the year prior to the tax cycle, you will receive a personal property tax bill. (FY2012 bills-campers were on site on January 1, 2011) Personal Property tax bills for campers cannot be abated or prorated if the camper is removed during the year. Abatements are allowed if the camper is registered and has a plate that meets the allowable dates or if you believe your camper is over valued. You must apply for an abatement in a timely manner. Please visit the Board of Assessors web site for the abatement application.
