NEW TAX BILL LAYOUT
Starting with this week’s mailing of the bills due February 1st, all real estate and personal property tax bills will be printed, sorted for bulk rate and/or multi-stuffed by Globe Direct located in Taunton, MA. Only those bills with an exact 100% match for both naming and addresses will be multi-stuffed.
Our new bill layouts are printed on both sides; see samples below. Bills scheduled for Dec 28thmailing.
COMBINED TAX BILLS
At our last town meeting, Ashby voters approved the combining of smaller real estate and personal property tax billings. Taxpayers who were used to receiving 4 quarterly tax bills ranging from $0.01 up to $25.00, will now only receive two tax billings per year. For example:
A $4.17 tax assessment which historically billed quarterly as: $1.04 + $1.04 + $1.05 + $1.04, will now bill as $2.08 due Aug1st and $2.09 due Feb1st. At the higher end of the eligible range:
A $50.00 annual tax (the cap for combining bills) will be $25.00 due Aug1st and $25.00 due Feb1st.
