Smithfield delays vehicle tax bills until August

SMITHFIELD – Smithfield announced it will hold off on sending out car tax bills until the end of August due to state budget delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The state is in year four of a six-year motor vehicle tax phase-out, that uses the annual state budget to define the amount of taxes that municipalities can levy on vehicles. Smithfield is postponing tax bills to adjust motor vehicle tax bills in case the state budget changes from the established phase-out schedule.

Real estate and property tax bills will be mailed on July 31.
