Tax Bill Information: The Town of Townsend is employing a lock box service for real estate, personal property, and motor vehicle excise tax payments. Payments will be sent to a Century Bank processing center in Reading, MA. Payments are deposited the day they are received at the processing center. This will expedite the task of opening and sorting mail, scanning, and ensuring payment totals match. The Collector's Office will still do the actual posting of payments to your account and is still the contact for payment questions. Payments can still be made in person at the Collector's Office in Town Hall. Please return unused payment enelopes to the Collector's Office and we will reuse them.
