Boat Excise Bills have been mailed for 2024. These bills cover the time period of July 1, 2023-June 30, 2024.
** IF YOU RECEIVED A BILL FOR A BOAT YOU NO LONGER OWN, PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS BILL. **
If you no longer own a boat that you are being billed for, please complete the Boat Change of Status Form and Boat Excise Tax Abatement Application forms below and submit these forms to the Assessors office. If you have sold your boat or are now mooring the boat in a different city or town, you will also need to submit this form to the Massachusetts Environments Police. We receive boat registration information from the Environmental Police once a year. We use this information (along with mooring slips) to determine which boats we need to bill for excise tax for the Town of Kingston for the current year.
** If you sold your boat after July 1, 2023, you may owe a partial amount on your bill for the time period that you did own your boat. **
