Collector of Taxes

Mission

Per the Town of Kingston's bylaws: The Collector of Taxes shall collect all accounts due to the Town committed to him by the Assessors, as well as all those which become due and payable through any other Department of the Town. The Town of Kingston at the Annual Town Meeting of March 3, 1928, accepted Section 38A, Chapter 41 of the General Laws as amended by Chapter 269 Acts of 1926, which provides that the Collector of Taxes shall collect all accounts due the town.

Online Payments

The Town Collector's office is pleased to provide our residents the ability to pay their town bills online. Residents can now pay real estate, personal property, motor vehicle excise, and water/sewer bills from the date of issue. Past due bills can now be paid online as well.

Current and past-due real estate and personal property taxes, as well as water bills, can be paid using the online payment system.

Current motor vehicle and boat excise bills can be paid using the online payment system. Past due motor vehicle excise and boat excise bills can be paid on the Deputy Collector's website.

Real Estate & Personal Property Tax

We are in the fiscal year 2022 (July 01, 2021 to June 30, 2022).

All information for Real Estate and Personal Property originates from the Board of Assessors 781-585-0509 and it is the Assessor's office that commits to the Town Collector the Warrant to collect those monies for the Town of Kingston.

It is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure their taxes are paid timely. Not receiving a tax bill does not bar a property owner from paying a tax. Refunds for real estate and personal property tax are processed at the end of the fiscal year and checks are mailed from late July to early August.
