Important Information Regarding Your Tax Bill

Under “An Act to Address Challenges Faced by Municipalities and State Authorities Resulting From COVID-19, “ Chapter 53 of the Acts of 2020, the town of Hingham has adopted local options to extend due dates for real and personal property payments and applications for exemptions.

  1. The due date of your real and personal property tax bill has been extended to June 1, 2020.
    June 1, 2020 is the new due date even if the due date for payment on your enclosed or previously mailed tax bill is May 1, 2020.
  2. The due date for applications for property tax exemptions has also been extended to June 1, 2020. 
    June 1, 2020 is the new due date for applications even if the due date on your enclosed or previously mailed tax bill is April 1, 2020.
    This extension applies to applications for the exemptions listed in the third paragraph of G.L. c. 59, sec 59, including exemptions under G.L. c. 59, sec 5, clauses Seventeenth, Seventeenth C, Seventeenth C ½, Seventeenth D, Eighteenth, Twenty-second, Twenty-second A, Twenty-second B, Twenty-second C, Twenty-second D, Twenty-second E, Twenty-second F, Thirty-seventh, Thirty-seventh A, Forty-first, Forty-first B, Forty-first C, Forty-first C ½, Forty-second, Forty-third, Fifty-second, Fifty-third, Fifty-sixth, and Fifty-seventh of section 5.

NOTE: If the municipal offices are closed on the June 1, 2020 extended due date for tax payments or filing of exemption applications as a result of the outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus or the declaration of a state of emergency issued by the governor on March 10, 2020, the due dates for tax payments and applications for exemptions are not extended – they will be due on June 1, 2020 even if the municipal offices are closed. (See section 10(b) of The Act.)
