What if I don’t receive a tax bill?

R.I. Gen. Laws § 44-7-7 (“Collection of Taxes Generally”) states the following:

 

“Failure by the Tax Collector to send or failure by the taxpayer to receive a notice shall not excuse the nonpayment of the tax or affect its validity or any proceedings for the collection of the tax.”

 

Real estate, Motor Vehicle, and Tangible tax bills are available and mailed in the first week of July. If you do not receive a bill, please contact the Town of South Kingstown Tax Collector’s Office to request a copy. You can also use your account number and account PIN to electronically retrieve a copy of your most-current tax bill.
