Motor Vehicle Excise Tax


Motor Vehicle Excise Tax information is received from the Registry of Motor Vehicles according to the information of the motor vehicle registration. Approximately 27,000 excise bills are mailed annually in the Town of Yarmouth.
The State of Massachusetts sets the tax rate and provides that information to the Town of Yarmouth.  Information on Motor Vehicle ownership and billing address also comes from the State.  For more information about this tax please see the State of Massachusetts web site.

Payment Due Date

Payments on motor vehicle excise are due 30 days from date of issue and will accrue interest on the 31st day at the rate of 12%. A demand charge of $25.00 will also be added to unpaid bills.

Unpaid Excise bills are marked at the Registry of Motor Vehicles, who then will not renew a driver’s license or car registration in the United States.
