Yes, it’s almost that time of year again! The first installment of taxes is due the month of July 2021. You have 30 days to pay and they are delinquent after August 2nd, 2021. Bills will be mailed out the end of June. If your mortgage is escrowed, your physical tax bill will be mailed to the bank. As you can imagine, our office gets very busy at times. So don’t wait in line, click here to pay your taxes online. There is a charge paying by Credit Card, but just a $2.00 flat fee for e-checks.
Local tax revenue is primarily derived from real estate, personal property (for businesses), and motor vehicle taxes.
As you can imagine, our office gets very busy at times. We encourage people to send their tax payments by mail rather than waiting in line.
- Remember to save your tax receipts in order to submit them with your income tax returns.
- If you want us to send you a receipt, please enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope along with your payment and the taxpayer portion of your bill.
- You can make multiple payments with one check if you wish.
- If your bill states that there are back taxes, please call our office to find out the additional amount due.
- Outstanding motor vehicle tax bills may now be paid by cash or online since the DMV has converted to an electronic system. We notify them electronically of take offs once daily. They no longer accept a stamped clearance.
- When changing your address with the Department of Motor Vehicles, make sure to change your driver’s license and registration as well.
- When making your request for a Motor Vehicle adjustment, please bring 2 forms of verification of the change with you to the Assessor’s Office (860-767-4340 ext. 124). Acceptable verifications include:
1. Plate receipt with affidavit
2. Bill of sale
3. Letter from your insurance company showing the date and reason for the change
4. Out-of-state registration
If you have not received your tax bill, make sure to contact us! Failure to receive a tax bill will not protect you from being charged interest on delinquent payments (CT Statute Section 12-130).
