Tax Collector

The Collector's/Parking Clerks Office is responsible for billing and collecting real estate, personal property, motor vehicle, water and sewer, parking tickets, water and sewer betterment fees, and other departmental billings. We also issue Municipal Lien certificates.

The City hired Kelley & Ryan Associates of Hopedale, Massachusetts as Deputy Collector’s.  Since that time they have collected thousands of dollars of overdue excise taxes.  Delinquent motor vehicle bills issued on behalf of the City of Pittsfield by Kelly & Ryan Associates can be paid at the Collector's office.

The City also participates in the Registry of Motor Vehicles license and registration renewal and marking program.  Pittsfield’s ability to mark licenses and registration as nonrenewable because of unpaid motor vehicle excise taxes and parking tickets has proven to be another very effective collection tool.

You can pay your Motor Vehicle, Real Estate, Personal Property and Water/Sewer tax bills online at our Online Payment Center.   You have 30 days from the date of issue on your bill to utilize the City’s online payment system.  There is a small fee to pay directly from your checking account.  Please note that a convenience fee will be charged for credit card payments.
