New legislation allows for extended time to mail fiscal year 2010 actual property tax bills. Communities that have accepted the quarterly tax payment system, or semi-annual preliminary tax payment system, under G.L. c. 59, section 57C, can now have until January 30, 2010. The mailing extension only applies, however, in communities that accept this legislation. Acceptance is by majority vote of the city or town council, subject to the municipal charter, or the board of selectman.
