When should I expect my tax bill?

Property tax bills are sent out in late June of each year for the entire fiscal year.  If payments are due quarterly then four payment stubs are included.  No other bill will be sent.

  • Real Estate - tax bills totaling $100 or less for Real Property are paid in one installment due July 1. Bills greater than $100 are due in quarterly installments on July 1, October 1, January 1 and April 1. If you sold your real estate and receive a tax bill, please return it to the Tax Office.
  • Personal Property - tax bills of $100 or less are paid in one installment due July 1. Bills greater than $100 are due in quarterly installments on July 1, October 1, January 1 and April 1.
  • Motor Vehicles - taxes are due in a single installment due July 1. If you no longer own the motor vehicle on which the tax bill is based, please contact the Tax Assessor's office. Remember that when you receive your tax bill, nine months of the year covered by the bill have already passed.

Never ignore a tax bill. Taxes will remain due and interest will continue to accumulate until the bill is paid. If you fail to receive your tax bill, please call the Tax Collector's Office (203-431-2779).

Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt taxes or interest. You are responsible for obtaining your tax bill and paying the taxes on time.  No tax collector has the right to waive interest. (State Statutes 12-130, 12-142, 12-146)

If you don't receive a tax bill by the end of the first week in July please contact the Tax Office so we can supply you with a replacement.
