Boat Declaration - Form of List

Upload file: 

Dear Boat Owner:

We are providing this form as a courtesy to facilitate your providing information needed to administer the boat excise tax.  State law requires that this form be filed annually with the Board of Assessors in the town where any boat/ship/vessel is habitually moored or docked as of July 1st.  In the case where there is no mooring or docking space, the form should be filed with the Board of Assessors in the town where the boat is habitually situated as of July 1, 2019

If there is a circumstance where you no longer have a boat/ship/vessel, we ask that you send in documentation on what happened to the boat, (sold, traded, moved to another town etc.). You will either receive a boat excise tax abatement and/or avoid being assessed a boat excise tax presently or in the future.  In addition, if you no longer own a boat, it is important to cancel your boat registration with the Massachusetts Environmental Police.  The M.E.P. can be contacted at 617-626-1610.

A COMPLETE FAILURE TO FILE THE BOAT FORM OF LIST, COULD RESULT IN A DENIAL OF ANY APPLICATION FOR ABATEMENT!

If you have any questions regarding this form, please call our office at 781-682-3852.  Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation.
