First installment due July 1st and 2nd installment due January 1st each year.
Tax Bills are mailed in Late June for real estate taxes with installment due dates of July 1st and January 1st based on the October 1st Grand List. There are two pay stubs attached to the bill for the July and January installment. No bill will be sent for second installment.
Real Estate Taxes must be postmarked or paid by August 1st for the July installment and postmarked or paid by February 1st for the January installment; if not, there is an interest charge of 1.5% per Month (18% annually), from the due date with a minimum interest charge of $2.00 per bill.
Failure to receive a tax bill does not invalidate the tax or interest due. As owners of property, taxpayers are responsible to know when their taxes are due. Failure to have received a bill does not exempt the taxpayer from payment of all taxes and all interest charges and collection cost, per Conn. Gen. Stat. 12-130 and 12- 146. Interest is charged to all late payments. There are no exceptions to this policy.
