West Brookfield Massachusetts

A Town for All Seasons

New Owners

State Law requires that property tax bills show the name of the legal owner of record as of January 1 prior to the beginning of the fiscal year. This office recognizes, however, that properties change hands throughout the year. We attempt to re-mail returned bills c/o the new owners, at the address shown in the deed, as soon as the ownership can be established. All new owners are encouraged to contact the office as soon as possible after a purchase to obtain a copy of any bill that has been issued and make sure that the Assessors and Collector have your local mailing address. Failure to receive a tax bill does not diminish your responsibility to pay the bill. If you have an escrow account with your mortgage company, it is your responsibility to forward a copy of your bill to the mortgage company for payment. We do not mail bills to mortgage companies.
