You need to apply for an abatement at the Assessors Office.
If the registration was transferred to another vehicle, bring your new registration and the bill for the vehicle you no longer own to the Assessors Office and they will adjust the bill for you.
If the registration was cancelled and you have a return plate receipt from the Registry of Motor Vehicles, bring the plate receipt and the bill for the vehicle you no longer own to the Assessors Office and they will adjust the bill for you. If you can't find your copy of the return plate receipt, you can contact your insurance company or obtain a duplicate from the Registry.
In either case, if you have paid the bill for the vehicle you no longer own, you will receive a refund check from our office in 2-3 weeks. If you have not paid the bill and there is a balance due, you can make payment in our office by any of the above mentioned methods of payment.
