On April 3, 2020, Governor Baker approved municipal relief registration passed by the state Legislature, granting cities and towns authority to extend deadlines for tax bills. The City of Medford has extended the deadline to pay tax and water bills from May 1 to June 1, 2020. The due date to apply for exemption of taxes has also been extended to June 1, 2020.
The City will waive the payment of interest and other penalty in the event of late payment of any excise, tax, betterment assessment or apportionment, water rate, annual sewer use, or other charge added to a tax for any payments with a due date on or after March 10, 2020, provided that payment is made before June 30, 2020.
