Motor Vehicle Excise

Excise Tax Bills
The Assessing Department has a responsibility for the motor vehicle excise tax bills originated by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor vehicles. The bills are issued locally based on vehicle information from the Registry, and then updated by the assessing staff to reflect any recent changes.

In some cases, the Assessing Department grants reductions (abatements) based on corrections and works closely with the Collector/Treasurer’s Office in regards to payments. The collections from MVE tax bills are vital in funding necessary municipal services in Ashland.

The Assessing Department is totally committed to answering any questions regarding MVE and it is truly dedicated to ensure residents are treated fairly and respectfully.
