The Tax Collector’s office is down the left hallway on the first floor of Town Hall, 27 Main Street.  After the Assessor has completed the Grand List and the Town budget is finalized, the amount of funds necessary to finance the Town are divided by the Grand List to determine the mill rate. The 2019 Grand List mill rate is 11.6.  Your property assessment (70% of fair market value) is then multiplied by the mill rate to determine your tax.  The Tax Collector then generates tax  bills for Real Estate, Business Personal Property and Motor Vehicle taxes.

Payment Due Dates for the 2021 Grand List:

  • Due July 1, 2022 — Last day to pay without penalty August 1, 2022 Coupon #1

    Tax bills, other than Supplemental Motor Vehicle are mailed once a year at the end of June.

    Supplemental Motor Vehicle Bills are mailed out in December.

Failure to make payment within 30 days of the due date renders payment delinquent and will immediately be subject to 3% interest.  From then on additional interest of 1.5% per month (18% annually) will be added.  Minimum interest charge is $2.00.  In accordance with State law, the oldest outstanding tax on any specific property is collected first.  

If you receive a tax bill for a motor vehicle you no longer own, DO NOT ignore.  Please contact the Assessor’s office (860-435-5176) Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 9am-4pm.

If you wish a receipt, please send a self-addressed stamped envelope with your payment. If mailing payment, consider getting a Certificate of Mailing from the Post Office.  Tax bills postmarked by final due date are considered timely payments.
