Auto Excise Tax Bills & Abatement Info


In order to receive a Disabled Veteran exemption from motor vehicle excise taxes we require a letter from the Massachusetts RMV stating that you were approved for Disabled Veteran plates. You do not need to register your vehicle with the Disabled Veteran plates to be eligible for the excise tax exemption. If you choose not to register your vehicle with the Disabled Veteran plates and are only applying for the approval letter for excise you must still meet all listed requirements for Disabled Veteran plates. Please click on the links above for further information pertaining to requirements and the application.

Disabled Veteran Plates are issued only to qualified Massachusetts resident veterans who meet the same qualifications as those applying for a disability plate. The DV plate letter (RMV35A) details your service-connected disabilities. You must have a combined rating of at least 60% service-connected disabilities for qualifying conditions. These are the same disabilities that would qualify you for disabled parking. These plates are issued only to qualifying persons who are the primary owner of a registered passenger vehicle.
