TAX BILL QUESTIONS

  • How do I remove a vehicle off of the tax roll?
    All information for billing motor vehicles is obtained from the RI DMV. In order to remove a vehicle, you must cancel the registration (return the plates) at the DMV. The bill reflects what was registered the previous calendar year. When a vehicle is canceled it will not be reflected immediately on the current tax bill, but will show on the subsequent year’s bill. If your motor vehicle registration renewal states “UNPAID TAXES” it will have to be stamped if mailing or cleared at the DMV by the collection office if you are going to renew online.
     
  • As a new owner of real estate, will I automatically receive a tax bill?
    Tax Bills on newly acquired properties are mailed to the OWNER OF RECORD (as of December 31). Only if requested by the new owner will a bill be mailed. Town of Glocester tax bills are mailed out mid-July. Please contact the Tax Collector’s office at 568-6206, ext 4 and a copy will be mailed.
     
  • I escrow my real estate taxes. Will I receive a tax bill?
    Only one real estate tax bill is printed. If you escrow taxes with your mortgage lender and they request your bill, it is mailed to the bank. If not requested by the bank then it is mailed to the taxpayer.
