Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How is a penalty assessed?
A: To avoid a penalty, your payment must be postmarked or hand delivered no later than August 3, 2015 or February 1, 2016. Payments postmarked after those dates will incur interest at the rate of 1.5% per month calculated back to the due date (July 1 or January 1).
Q: If I am paying more than one tax bill, do I need a separate check for each account?
A: No. You may pay all accounts with one check. Just be sure to reference each tax account number on the memo line of your check.
Note: Sewer use and assessments must be paid separately to the Water Pollution Control Authority
Q: How was my tax calculated?
A: Your tax was determined by this formula: Assessment x Mill Rate = Tax. The current mill rate will be noted at the top of your statement.
Q: What if I received a tax bill for real estate I no longer own?
A: Please notify the tax office immediately at (860) 870-3660.
Q: If I received a tax bill for my property and my bank is responsible for making payment, what should I do?
A: Forward your bill to the bank and ask your bank to contact the tax office to request that all future tax bills be sent directly to them. (Note: Only one tax bill is sent; this means if you received the bill, your bank did not).
Q: Are there tax discounts for elderly residents?
A: Yes, but income, age and other eligibility requirements must be met. Call the Assessor's Office after February 1 for information (860) 870-3625.
