The Town of Lee bills taxes on a semiannual basis. Bills are issued after the Commonwealth has approved our tax rate. Bills for the first half of FY2019 were mailed November 5, 2018, and due December 5, 2018. For the second half, bills will be mailed March 29, 2019 and due May 1, 2019.
Payments must be received in the Tax Collector's office on or before the due date to be considered on time. Any bills received in the office after the due date will have interest added to the bill and will continue to accrue daily at a rate of 14% per annum until paid. For bills mailed to the office please allow adequate time (at least two days) for payment to be received. The postmark date is NOT considered the date of receipt.
Taxpayers are asked to please include the Remit Copy of their bill with payment and write the bill number on their check. Payments should be mailed to Treasurer/Collector, Town of Lee, 32 Main Street, Lee, MA 01238 or paid in person at the Tax Collector’s Office from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

If you are using a third party payer and the Remit Copy of the bill will not be included with your payment (such as your bank's online payment service) The following information must be clearly shown on the check to properly credit your account: (a) the type of bill being paid (e.g. real estate, excise), (b) the year of the bill (2018) and (c) the bill number. If you are using information that may have been stored by your bank for previous payments please update it each year. If a payment is returned without the information required, or with incorrect information, your payment may be returned to you. If returned for insufficient information payment will be considered received when received with the correct information.
