Motor Vehicle Excise tax bills are due on Monday, March 4, 2024. According to MGL Chapter 60A, Section 2 "Failure to receive notice shall not affect the validity of the excise." This means that even if you don't receive the bill, you are still liable for paying the excise plus any accrued interest and fees. Bills are sent to addresses on file, at the Registry of Motor Vehicles, for vehicles that are registered or garaged in Gardner as of December 31, 2023.
Please note, last year a number of undeliverable bills were to residents in multi-family properties. This is a delivery issue with the U.S. Postal Service but residents should be aware that it could be a problem again this year. If you do not receive your bill, contact the Tax Collector's office at 978-630-4008.
