Real Estate Taxes

The City operates on a fiscal year that starts on July 1st and ends on June 30th.  The City uses a quarterly tax billing system.  Tax bills are mailed four times per year:

First Quarter: July 1st
Second Quarter: October 1st
Third Quarter: January 1st
Fourth Quarter: April 1st

The City sends the tax bills 30 days before their due date.  Your quarterly tax bills are due on these dates:

Quarter Due Date
First Quarter: July 1st thru September 30th August 1
Second Quarter: October 1st thru December 31st November 1
Third Quarter: January 1st thru March 30th February 1
Fourth Quarter: April 1st thru June 30th May 1

If the first of the month falls on a weekend, your bill is due on the following Monday.

Assessed taxes on Real Estate stay with the property – Not the name on the tax bill. So, if you own the property, you need to make sure that the property taxes are paid. Otherwise, the unpaid taxes could result in a lien against the property.

The name on the tax bill is the property owner as of January 1st before the start of the given fiscal year. If you sell a property and the City still mails you a tax bill, please forward it to the new owner of the property or return to:

Assessor’s Office
City of Revere
281 Broadway
Revere, MA 02151

Any other correspondence for City business should be addressed to the appropriate department.  Do not leave cash!

Late Payments

If payment is not made within 30 days of the date the City issued the tax, the Collector/Treasurer adds interest to your bill from the day after it was due until you pay it off at an annual rate of 14 percent.  The Collector/Treasurer sends a demand notice after the due date of the 4th quarter tax bills.  The demand charge is $5.

If you still haven’t paid your account by June 30th of the fiscal year, the City places a tax lien on your property and records it at the Suffolk County Registry of Deeds.  A lien is a legal claim on your property for debt, and it’s the first step in the foreclosure process.

You need to pay all of your taxes, fees, and interest on your account to avoid foreclosure.  If you need more information, please call the Collector’s Office: 781-286-8120.

Please Note:  Even if you never received your tax bill, state law requires you to still pay any interest or fines if you’re late on your payment.  It’s your responsibility to make sure you get a copy of your bill and pay your taxes.

If you want to change your Mailing address, you are required to contact the Assessor’s office at 781-286-8170.

Tax Title/Tax Lien

The City places a lien on delinquent taxes on or before June 30th of the fiscal year.  The delinquent properties are advertised in a local newspaper for two weeks in June of that fiscal year.  Six months from when the lien is recorded at the Registry of Deeds the City mails a courtesy letter that notifies the delinquent taxpayer that the City intends to proceed with the foreclosure of the property unless the delinquency has been settled by a given date.  The property is then petitioned for foreclosure in the Suffolk Land Court.

Once the City receives the final judgment, the property is then sold at public auction or foreclosure.

If you have received a Tax Lien, call the Treasurer’s Office at 781-286-8136, or visit the office during normal business hours, to work towards a resolution.
