Under “An Act to Address Challenges Faced by Municipalities and State Authorities Resulting from COVID-19,” Chapter 53 of the Acts of 2020, the town has adopted a local option to extend due dates for FY 20 fourth quarter real and/or personal property tax payments.
The due date of your FY 20 fourth quarter real and/or personal property tax bill has been extended to June 1, 2020. June 1, 2020 is the new due date even if the due date for payment on your previously FY 20 real and/or personal property mailed tax bill is May 1, 2020.
NOTE - If the municipal offices are closed on the June 1, 2020 extended due date for tax payments as a result of the outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus or the declaration of a state of emergency issued by the governor on March 10, 2020, the due dates for the FY 20 real and/or personal tax payments are not extended – they will be due on June 1, 2020 even if the municipal offices are closed.
If you are unable to pay your FY 20 real and/or personal property tax in full, please consider making partial payments. Please specify the bill number and/or address when mailing a partial payment without a remit copy of the bill. Those payments can be sent directly here to the Dartmouth Town Hall, 400 Slocum Road, Dartmouth MA, 02747, Attention: Town Collectors Office.
Motor Vehicle Excise tax due dates have NOT been extended, unfortunately partial payments cannot be accepted for excise.
Due to the recent concerns about the Corona Virus, the Town Collector’s office strongly recommends utilizing the online bill payment system for all tax payments. To pay online simply go to www.town.dartmouth.ma.us then click the link at the top left of the home page “Online Payments”. This is the safest way for you to make payments.
If you do not have access to a computer or you choose to mail your payment and would like a receipt, please include both the remit and taxpayer portion of your bill with a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
If you normally pay in person with cash, you will need to get a money order and mail your payment.
For your convenience, we have a silver drop box located outside the front of the town hall for anyone wishing to drop off payments. No Cash Please!
Please contact the Town Collector’s office for any information or concerns that you may have regarding your Tax bill @ (508) 910-1806.
Stay Safe & Stay Well
