Tax bills for Real Estate and Personal Property greater than $600 are due in two installments, July 1, 2017 and January 1, 2018.  All Motor Vehicle tax bills will be due in full in July.  The last day to pay the July installment without an interest charge is Tuesday, August 1, 2017 by 4:00 p.m. 

At this time only the FIRST INSTALLMENT of Real Estate and Personal Property tax bills based on the 31.7 mill rate will be mailed.  Once the State of Connecticut’s budget for FY 2017-18 is approved, you will receive the ADJUSTED SECOND INSTALLMENT with a due date of January 1, 2018. The adjustment will compensate for any variance in state assistance.

If you do not receive a bill for which you are responsible, call the Tax Office at 860-870-3113 and request a copy, or go to and click on the “Online Bill Pay” to view your bill online, or print a duplicate copy.

The motor vehicle tax bill covers the period of October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017.  If a vehicle was sold, stolen, or totally destroyed and the registration was not transferred to another vehicle, you may be eligible for a tax credit.  To obtain a credit, you must furnish proof as required by the Assessor. If you have an assessment question please call 860-870-3109 or email
