If the service warrant demanding final payment is not paid, the deputy collector may then notify the Registry of Motor Vehicles of such non-payment. The Registry will then mark the individual’s registration preventing the renewal of the motor vehicle registration and the owner’s driver license. The taxpayer will then be assessed a $20.00 mark fee in addition to all other penalties and interest. Payments on marked bills can be made at the deputy collector’s office or the collector’s office. If paid with cash or a money order the deputy collector will clear the bill at the registry immediately upon payment. If paid with a personal check, there is a three week waiting period before the mark will be cleared. Please note that if more than one excise bill is due all must be paid in order to have the mark cleared.
