What are the requirements for abatements?

The Assessor's office must receive abatement applications within 3 years after the excise is due or within one year after the excise is paid, whichever is later.

Example: Assume that an excise tax bill is due on February 25, 2011. The abatement deadline would be February 25, 2014, or one year after the payment of the bill, whichever is later.
