Motor Vehicle Taxation
The Assessor is responsible for the fair and equitable assessment of all motor vehicles within a municipality during an assessment year. The Department of Motor Vehicles provides each municipality with a list of all the registered vehicles in Town as of October 1st annually. The registered owner receives the tax bill in July which covers the time period from the prior October 1st thru the following September 30th.
