What is a fiscal year?

In Massachusetts a fiscal year is a 12-month period starting July 1 and ending June 30.  All Real Estate Tax Bills encompass this time period.  The year is identified by the year of the second six months: ie., July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020 is called FY2020. 

The current fiscal year is FY2024 (running from July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024).
