6/10/2024 Assembly approves Rep. DeSimone and Sen. Britto’s electronic tax bill legislation
STATE HOUSE – The General Assembly today approved legislation sponsored by Rep. Anthony J. DeSimone and Sen. Robert Britto that would allow municipalities, upon request by the taxpayer, to issue tax bills digitally or electronically.
“Times change and not everyone wants to receive their tax bills through the mail anymore.  This bill will give our residents more options and allow them to receive their tax bills in a way that best serves them,” said Representative DeSimone (D-Dist. 5, Providence).
“Although many residents still prefer a hard copy of their tax bill sent through the mail, others, especially younger residents, may not.  This legislation will ensure that tax bills are sent to residents accurately and securely in a way that works best for the taxpayers,” said Senator Britto (D-Dist. 18, East Providence, Pawtucket).
The legislation (2024-H 7110, 2024-S 2639) would allow municipal tax collectors to establish programs so that a taxpayer can waive their right to receive notice of the amount of tax owed via mail in lieu of notice via email or through some other digital or electronic means.
The legislation now heads to the governor for consideration.
