This tax information is public information. It is possible that in spite of your best efforts to search, and in spite of our best efforts to provide the information, you may not locate all of the bills you are looking for. If you cannot find what you are looking for by searching one way, we suggest searching another. If you are seeking a definitive answer as to what or how much you owe, speak to one of our tax collector office employee’s.

If you get a call from someone claiming to be from the Town of Vernon here's what you should do:
♦ If you know you owe taxes or you think you might owe taxes call (860) 870-3660 and the clerk at that line can help
you with a payment issue.
We want to educate taxpayers so they can be vigilant and help protect themselves against phone or
email scams. "Rest assured, we do not and will not ask for credit card numbers over the phone, nor request
a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer," "If someone unexpectedly calls claiming to be from the Town of Vernon and
threatens police arrest, deportation or license revocation if you don't pay immediately, that is a sign that it really
isn't the Town of Vernon calling."
No sales are scheduled at this time.
