Update on Tax Bills

Dear Residents using the Town's online Tax Billing program,

Town staff are continuing to work with our online Real Estate Tax billing company to resolve the Real Estate Tax billing issue. All electronic bills should be corrected by Monday January 6th, 2020.  You should receive a correct email showing only a Quarter 3 Tax Bill.  If your bill is still incorrect, please call the Tax Collector's Office at (978) 688-9550.

Please be aware that all tax bills will be accepted until February 7, 2020 without penalty. 

Again, the Town apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you for your patience. 

Note:  If you did not sign up for the Town's Online Tax Billing program and receive your Tax Bill via postal mail, you are not affected by this.

Blue Water Navy Veterans’ disability claims to be decided beginning Jan.1, 2020

Did you serve in the offshore waters of the Republic of Vietnam between Jan. 9, 1962, and May 7, 1975? If so, then you’re considered a Blue Water Navy (BWN) Veteran.

On Jan. 1, 2020, the Blue Water Navy Act of 2019 goes into effect. This Act was signed into law on Jun. 25, and extends the presumption of herbicide exposure, such as Agent Orange, to BWN Veterans who served as far as 12 nautical miles from the shore of Vietnam and have since developed one of 14 conditions related to exposure. Some of these conditions include Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, many forms of cancer and others. You may now be eligible for disability compensation and other benefits. In addition, if you’re a Veteran who served in the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between Sept. 1, 1967, and Aug. 31, 1971, you may also qualify for compensation and benefits for yourself and your family members.  Click here to learn about eligibility and how to submit a claim. VAntagePoint (2019, December 13).
