MOTOR VEHICLE EXCISE BILLS


Motor Vehicle Excise Bills will be sent out in February.  If you are planning to apply for an abatement, please take note of the following:

·       The general rule is:
Show us where the plate is, and show us where the car is!

·       If you are applying by mail, DO NOT use the back of your bill. Download an application from this site (MV Appl).  Check the (MV Check List) to ensure that you have sent all documentation required.  Applications without the proper paperwork cannot be processed. Send to the Assessors Office, 380 Great Rd, Stow, MA 01775.

·       If you are applying in person, be sure to read (MV Check List), so that you come prepared with all documentation required.

Note: Due to high volumes of Motor Vehicle abatement applications, not all applications will be processed at the time of drop off.

All of us in the Assessors’ Office thank you for following these simple guidelines.  If applications can
be processed more efficiently, then you, the taxpayer, can get your money back more quickly.

Who We Are and What We Do
The Assessors in Stow are an elected board required to value all property in their community annually at full and fair cash value (market value) as outlined in Chap. 59 of the Massachusetts General Laws. The goal of assessors is to pro  vide equity in assessing, thereby providing tax equity. For real estate and personal property, the Department of Revenue is charged, by statute, with the responsibility of certifying, every three years, that the assessors are complying with the statutes and that they do it fairly and equitably.

The market value of residential properties is determined by using valid sales of similar properties from the year preceding January first, the assessment date.
