Why did my real estate bill get mailed to me?

Mass General Law requires the City mail real estate bills to the owner of record as of January 1 of the fiscal year commencing July 1. It is the owners responsibility to ensure their bank/mortgage escrow company receives the information. Owners subsequent to January 1 are responsible for taxes due even if they do not receive an invoice. If you have purchased property after January 1, contact the Assessors Office at 508-821-1011 to add your mailing information to the bill.
