Your 2018 permit DECALS for moorings, boats and dinghies will be mailed to the address we have on file in the week before Memorial Day. We routinely mail these permit decals as close to the start of the boating season as possible to minimize misplacement of the little decals and help preserve marital harmony. (There's always a spouse to blame for the "misplaced decals" - even when they have yet to be mailed out!)

Watch you mailbox around Memorial Day for those 2018 Green Decals.

Mooring Permit Late Registration Ends Today
State and local Regulations specify that all mooring permits in the Commonwealth of MA must terminate no later than December 31st of the year in which issued. Dartmouth Mooring Regulations, adopted in 2003, require renewal of any mooring permit by March 31st each year. The Harbormaster Office attempts to assist with registration renewal by mailing reminder/invoices to each permit holder address on file by mid-February of each year. LATE MOORING REGISTRATION requires an additional late mooring registration fee of $100 per mooring permit. IF the Town Collector does not receive your late registration form and payment by May 1, 2018, State Law requires that the mooring site be re-assigned to the mandated mooring permit waiting list.

Town to mail out Boat Excise Tax Bills on March 31st
Boat Excise Tax bills are scheduled to be mailed out on Friday March 31st. This billing is for ownership of certain boats between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018. Boat Excise Tax amounts are set by State Law under M.G.L. Chapter 60B. Payment of this excise tax is required for use of local waterways by Chapter 60B, section 4. Excise Tax bills have been mailed out earlier in prior years, but payment of boat excise will remain due within 60 days of their posting date. Please contact the Dartmouth Assessor Office regarding boat excise tax issues or abatement for any reason.
