Frequently Asked Questions
How can I pay my taxes?
We currently accept cash, personal checks and money orders (certified bank funds). If you are delinquent you must pay with cash or certified bank funds. Unfortunately you cannot pay your bill online at this time. You can either pay in person at the Finance office on the 1st floor of City Hall or mail us your payment to the address at the top of the left-hand column.
When are my taxes due?
The 2013 tax bills will be mailed in Mid-July with the following due dates: August 1st, October 1st, January 1st, April 1st.
Is there a grace period?
Yes, there is a six (6) business day grace period for every due date.
How can I change the mailing address on my tax bill?
See the Assessor’s Office portion of the website to obtain a change of address form. This form must be completed by the property owner ONLY and returned to the Assessor’s Office. The form can be mailed, emailed, or dropped off in person at the Assessor’s window on the first floor of City Hall. PLEASE NOTE: Any forms submitted by someone other than the property owner will NOT be honored.
How can I get a clearance letter for a car registration renewal?
You must be current with your vehicle tax payments in order to renew your registration. If you are current, your registration will be mailed to you at the address you have given to the Rhode Island Department of Motor Vehicles.
However, if you are delinquent with any of the four quarterly payment installments, you must pay your bill IN FULL (entire year) with cash or certified bank funds to receive a clearance letter from the City of Central Falls. All delinquent registrations are held at City Hall until all your vehicle tax bills are paid in full. Once the vehicle tax is paid in full, you will receive a clearance letter or registration renewal that you can then take to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to renew your registration.
