The role of the collector in municipal finance

Learn how the municipal collector contributes to the financial stability of Massachusetts communities.

The municipal collector is responsible for printing and mailing property tax bills, handling cash receipts and collections, and issuing refunds for over payments. In some communities, the collector receives and processes all payments due the municipality, such as water or sewer bills, liens and betterments, and payments for code violations. The role of collector can sometimes be combined with that of the treasurer. Learn more about the role of the collector by reviewing the resources below.
