Why am I being taxed for a vehicle I no longer own?


Tax bills are mailed each year in mid-August. The information for billing motor vehicles is obtained from the RI DMV, reflecting the previous calendar year. If you had a vehicle registered for any portion of the prior calendar year, the vehicle will appear on your bill, showing the following in the description portion of your bill:


Plate#, # of Days, Date Range, Year, Make, Model, VIN, Net Valuation, Tax Adj. and Tax Due


You may pay the bill in full or opt to make quarterly payments. The bottom portion of your bill has the 4 quarterly coupons attached. This is the payment collection cycle, which extends throughout our fiscal year (ending the following June 30th ). Even though you may have disposed of a vehicle during this period, you are liable to make the quarterly payments because the vehicles were registered to you during the noted assessment period.

How do I get a vehicle off the tax roll?


All information for billing motor vehicles is obtained from the RI DMV. In order to remove a vehicle, you must cancel the registration (return the plates) at the DMV or any AAA office (if you are a member).


Be advised that the billing is for the previous calendar year, so the removal of a vehicle will not be immediately reflected on the current bill, but rather on the subsequent year's bill (or possibly the year after, depending on the cancellation date).

I'm a new owner on a property- will I automatically get a tax bill?


Tax bills on newly acquired properties will be sent out only if they are requested. Our normal schedule for mailing all bills is mid-August. Any persons requesting copies of bills for purchases after this date are required to call the tax office @ 247-1900 x318, and a copy will be mailed.

I escrow my real estate taxes, why am I receiving a tax bill?


You will receive a copy of your bill even if you escrow. It most likely won't be necessary to send your mortgage company a copy. If we have received a request from your mortgage company, they will be sent the information automatically.
