Penalties for Non-Payment
If an excise is not paid within 30 days from the issue date, the local tax collector will send a demand, with a fee of not more than $30.00 dollars. In addition, interest will accrue on the overdue bill at an annual rate of 12 percent from the day after the due date.
If the demand is not answered within 14 days, the collector may issue a warrant to the deputy tax collector or an appointed agent, which carries another $10 fee. The deputy tax collector (or agent) issues a warrant notice at a cost of $12. If there is still no response, a final warrant, a service warrant, will be delivered or exhibited to the taxpayer at his/her last known residence or workplace, at a fee of $17. All interest and penalties should be clearly stated on the bill.
In the case of motor vehicle and Trailer excise, if the bill remains unpaid after the service of warrant the Deputy or Agent will mark the registration and or license for Non-renewal and there will be an additional $20 Registry fee added to the bill.
