Tax bills in error
Wrong real estate tax bills sent out; corrected ones in the mail
The following notice has been released by the office of the mayor:
Due to a printing error, property owners in the City of Gloucester received an in correct real estate bill last week marked “Fiscal Year 2013″ in the upper right hand corner of the tax bill. This bill has both the wrong fiscal year and the wrong tax amount due on it.Please disregard this bill. All property owners will receive a correct tax bill this week in the mail marked “Fiscal Year 2014″. The correct amount due is listed on the “Fiscal Year 2014″ real estate tax bill.
Local banks and mortgage service companies did receive the correct Fiscal Year 2014 real estate tax bill information electronically last week. Therefore, any property owners that escrow taxes through a bank or a mortgage service company are, in all likelihood, not affected. Also, the correct property tax information is available to view, print and pay on the City’s website, http://www.qloucester-ma.gov under online services — real estate taxbills.
Taxes are due and payable on February 3, 2014.
The personal property tax bills that were sent out last week are correct.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused. If you have any questions please contact the Tax Collector’s Office at 978-281-9735 or go to www.gloucester-ma.qov for more information.
A reminder to Boston commuters who use the Callahan Tunnel:
The tunnel is currently closed and will remain so until March. Signs for alternate routes to Logan Airport and the North Shore are posted on major highways approaching Boston.
Thanks for your support and interest in our city in 2013 and I hope you all have a happy and prosperous New Year!
