When you sell your boat, you may be entitled to receive an abatement. In order to apply for a boat excise tax abatement, the Assessors will need proof that you disposed of the boat.
If you traded or sold your boat, please provide the Assessors with a copy of the dealer's invoice showing the trade-in, or if a private sale, a copy of the bill of sale.
If you registered your boat in another state, please provide the Assessors with a copy of the out-of-state registration. The Assessors recommend that the boat owner cancel his Massachusetts registration with the Massachusetts Division of Environmental Police.
