Important notice to taxpayers:

The City of Boston has extended the due date for fourth quarter property tax bills until June 1. We want to give taxpayers more flexibility during the COVID-19 public health crisis. Property tax bills were previously due May 1.

The City is also waiving interest and fees on some property tax and motor vehicle excise payments. The waiver applies to bills due after March 10, so long as you pay before June 30. That means that any taxpayer facing a penalty for not paying their bill on time will have a grace period until June 29 to make their payment. For more information, read the official notice.
