Excise tax bills generally go out once a year, usually around the middle of February. This bill covers the full calendar year and is an annual tax. You may receive a second bill during the year if certain actions are taken by you with the registry of motor vehicles. These can include reactivating a lapsed registration, switching the plate to a new vehicle, or registering additional vehicles within the year.
All bill types are due after 30 days. After that time, bills are subject to interest and fees. If a bill due date falls on a Saturday or Sunday the bill is due the next business day, normally Monday.
