IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR TAX BILL


Under “An Act to Address Challenges Faced by Municipalities and State Authorities Resulting from COVID-19, “ Chapter 53 of the Acts of 2020, the Town of Ashfield has adopted local options to extend due dates for real and personal tax payments and applications for exemptions and a waiver on interest on certain municipal tax and other bills paid by June 30, 2020, See below.

  1. The due date of your real and personal property tax bill has been extended to June 1, 2020.  June 1, 2020 is the new due date even if your tax bill date on your previously mailed bill is May 1, 2020.
  2. The due date for applications for property tax exemptions has also been extended to June 1, 2020.  June 1, 2020 is the new due date even if the due date for applications on your previously mailed tax bill is April 1, 2020.  Please contact the Assessors Office for more information regarding exemptions.
  3. The Town has also voted to waive interest and other penalty for late payment of any excise, tax, betterment assessment or apportionment thereof, water rate or annual sewer use or other charges added to the tax for any payments with a due date on or after March 10, 2020 where the payment is made late but before June 30, 2020.  This applies to late payments of bills that have a due date of March 10, 2020 or after, when such bills are paid late but paid on or before June 30, 2020.  This waiver of interest does not apply to bills with due dates before March 10, 2020 or if the bill is not paid by June 30, 2020.
