The Town of Smithfield will issue motor vehicle tax bills the week of October 12th. The first quarter due date for these tax bills is November 16th, with subsequent quarterly payments due according to the normal quarterly schedule at the end of December, March, and June.

These tax bills are being issued before the finalization of the Rhode Island state budget. If the final state budget includes any changes to the motor vehicle tax phase-out calculation, the Town of Smithfield may be required to issue additional supplementary tax bills.

September 1, 2020: The Town of Smithfield has further postponed the mailing of motor vehicle tax bills amid delays in the state budget caused by the pandemic.

The 2020 real estate and personal property tax bills were mailed on July 31st, and town officials anticipate motor vehicle tax bills will follow by the end of September after state lawmakers reconvene to pass the budget.
