Town of Bedford Real Estate Taxes

Bedford’s Fourth Quarter Real Estate tax bills were mailed on March 31 and, according to the information on the bills, the payments are due on May 1.

Proposed legislation in the Massachusetts House and Senate to help towns manage their finances during the Covid-19 emergency could make a difference to the Town’s payment schedule. The Citizen will post an update if property tax bills are affected.
