- This past April, the State enacted Chapter 53 of the Acts of 2020, which included important relief for Massachusetts taxpayers in several areas. The Town immediately implemented these relief options in order to help ease the burden during these unprecedented times. They included extensions for claiming exemptions and deferrals as well as a commitment to waive penalties and interest on certain overdue tax payments for a period of time. The legislation allows for penalties and interest to waived on certain tax and excise payments if paid by June 30, 2020. On June 30, the waiver period will end and interest will be accrued based on when the bill was originally due. We encourage residents with outstanding bills that fall within this category to make payments by June 29 to avoid these charges. As always, the Treasurer’s Office is committed to working with residents to provide any assistance and guidance on options available regarding tax payments.
