TAX BILLS HAVE BEEN MAILED!
The Fiscal 2020 Real Estate and Personal Property tax bills were mailed to Middleborough property owners on November 15, 2019. The bills will be due and payable on or before December 16, 2019. Payments received after that date will be subject to a 14 per cent interest charge which would begin on the due date in accordance with state law.
Fiscal 2020 Real Estate and Personal Property bills are sent to the assessed owner as of January 1, 2019. We make every attempt to obtain new owner mailing addresses but if you receive a tax bill for a property no longer owned by you, please either send the bill to the new owner or return it to the office of the Tax Collector advising them of the change in ownership so the bill may be forwarded. Taxpayers with bank escrow accounts should make certain that the mortgage holder has made arrangements for accurate and timely payments.
By law, the taxpayer is responsible for the tax bill whether or not a bill is received. If you do not receive your tax bill within a reasonable amount of time following the date of issue, contact the office of the Tax Collector for the amount due and/or a copy of the bill.
Taxpayers who qualify for statutory exemptions such as elderly, disabled veteran (service connected disability), blind or surviving spouse and HAVE NOT already filed may come into the Assessors’ Office on or before April 1, 2020 to obtain an application. You will be required to supply a copy of supporting documentation including a birth or death certificate, etc if we do not have one on file or you are filing for the first time.
Abatement applications for both Real Estate and Personal Property may be filed at the Assessors’ Office. The application can be found at the town’s website www.middleborough.com on the Assessors’ Office web page. The comparable sales book is available in the Assessors’ Office. The deadline for abatement applications is December 16, 2019.
The Assessors’ Office is located at the Town Hall, 10 Nickerson Avenue and is open Monday through Friday from 8:45 am to 5:00 pm. The Tax Collector’s Office is located on the third floor of the Town Hall Annex at 20 Centre Street and is open Monday through Friday 8:45 am to 5:00 pm.
