Excise tax bills are issued throughout the year when commitments are received from the Registry of Motor Vehicles. All bills are based on the information provided by the RMV; it is very important that the RMV have your correct mailing address, be sure to notify them of any change immediately.
Never ignore an excise bill. If you receive a bill for a vehicle which you no longer own, you must contact the Pelham Assessor's office for an abatement form. You must file your completed paperwork in a timely manner. Tax payments are due thirty days from the date of mailing regardless of whether an abatement is in process. It is suggested that you pay the bill on time in order to avoid additional fees and interest; you will receive a refund if your application for abatement is granted.
If a bill remains delinquent, the Registry of Motor Vehicles is notified and your right to register other vehicles or to renew your license or registration is denied until payment is received.
