Massachusetts State law allows motor vehicle excise tax exemptions for vehicles owned by certain disabled people and veterans, former prisoners of war and their surviving spouses, and charitable organizations. To find out if you qualify, call the Taxpayer Referral and Assistance Center at 617-635-4287.
The state’s Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) sends information to the City of Boston every year, which is used to calculate the amount of the excise bill. By law, the RMV determines the value of each motor vehicle and trailer using the list price and age of the vehicle and trailer.
Is the excise tax of my car related to it's value?
You are taxed at a rate of $25 per thousand dollars of your car’s value. If you registered your car after January 31, you are taxed from the month that you registered your car until the end of the calendar year. For example, if you register your car on April 20, you will be taxed for nine months of the year, from April 1 until December 31.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
