NEWS FROM THE TAX COLLECTOR’S OFFICE – 10-30-23
Delinquent tax bills have been mailed out. See payment options below on how to make your payment.
Delinquent Motor Vehicle bills have been reported to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Please pay your tax bill as soon as possible to avoid having a registration held up.
It will be necessary to have all accounts paid to be able to register a vehicle.
Please make sure you pay your taxes at least 2 weeks before you need to register your vehicle to make sure you have no compliance issues. You can check DMV’s online services under compliance issues to ensure you are clear before you go to DMV. If you need clearance before the 2-week period of time then you will need to make your payment with a credit/debit card online or in the office. Payment can be made with cash or money order in the Tax Collector’s Office as well.
Please make us aware you are requesting a release for DMV as it is not immediately taken off.

PLEASE BE ADVISED The Town of Bolton is under contract with TaxServ Capital services for the collection of some of the Town’s delinquent taxes. If your account was sent to TaxServ, you MUST call them to discuss your account and arrange payment. If you call the Tax Collector/Assessor we will direct you to Tax Serv for payment.
Reasons why your account(s) may go to collection
- The amount of tax owed with no consistent payments being made.
The tax office takes a lot of time to make sure that delinquent tax bills are mailed out every month to our taxpayers. Please consider making monthly payments when you receive your bill to lower the interest you are paying, making sure you can pay the balance if need be when you have to register, and to avoid your account(s) going to collection.
- If you owe more than 1 year without consistent payments being made.
Taxes should be paid when they are owed, or a payment arrangement made on the account should be made on the account(s) before the registration needs to be renewed or when a registration is needed.
- If you have moved out of state and have not paid your taxes on time.
If you receive a bill from us in July that means your vehicles registration(s) were actively registered in Bolton as of October of the previous year. You will be responsible for paying Bolton property tax even if you live in another state. Please make sure you register in your current state and send the Assessor’s Office a copy of it, so that we may adjust your bill if needed. It is important to do this as soon as possible because the state statutes only allow the Assessor’s 2 years from the Grand List date to make an adjustment on the tax accounts.
There will be additional fees if your account(s) are turned over to collection so please get in touch with the tax office and make a payment if delinquent.
