City of Cambridge Income Tax Office Goes Green

To save tax dollars, resident's and businesses using their accountant's income tax forms will no longer receive an income tax form in the mail. If you received an income tax postcard, it should be taken to your accountant at the time you supply your documentation.

As treasurer since 1990, many changes have been implemented to create fairness and uniformity to all citizens. The greatest commitment is to ensure that we account for every tax dollar. For your convenience, all tax forms are available to download and print here.

We hope you find all information necessary to enhance your quality of life and business needs in Cambridge.

Best regards,
Colleen M. Oess
Treasurer, City of Cambridge
