Excise Tax Bills

All billing addresses for excise tax bills originate with the Registry of Motor Vehicles. You may change the billing address of an excise tax bill with the City of Worcester only after it has been issued. To ensure your address is correct on a bill before it is issued, it must be supplied to the Registry of Motor Vehicles.

Anyone wishing to change their billing address can simply fill out the required information on the Change Mailing Address form. Select the "excise" bill type. The address change will be made to all your outstanding excise bills. If you would like to make the address change to paid bills, please list the bill numbers of the accounts you would like changed. (Please note: changing your address with the City of Worcester WILL NOT change your address with the Registry of Motor Vehicles. You must contact the Registry of Motor Vehicles also.)
