Tyngsborough Property Assessment Data

The Assessors Department has teamed up with Patriot Properties to make assessment data available to the public. You can also come into our office to get a copy of your property record card.

Motor Vehicle Excise Tax:

Assessment – An excise is assessed on a motor vehicle or trailer by the assessors of the municipality in which the vehicle is customarily garaged.  The excise is based on information furnished on the application for registration with the Registry of Motor Vehicles.  Any corrections to the excise tax must be made with the Registry of Motor Vehicles.

Abatements of Motor Vehicle Excise Tax may be granted when:

  • The vehicle is sold and the registration is cancelled or transferred to another vehicle
  • The vehicle is transferred to another state with proof of registration in such other state and proof of cancellation of plate in Massachusetts
  • When the vehicle is overvalued
  • When there is a subsequent registration of the same vehicle in the same year by the same person
  • When the vehicle is totaled, repossessed or stolen with proper proof of vehicles’ disposition along with proof of plate cancellation or transfer
