City Tax Deadline is February 1

The Norwalk Tax Collector’s office reminds taxpayers that they have until Friday, February 1, 2019, to pay their property tax bills for real estate, motor vehicle, business personal property, and sewer use charges.

Bills must be paid by February 1 to avoid interest charges. Interest on late payments will be charged at the rate of 3 percent beginning on February 2. This represents 1.5 percent interest per month for the months of January and February.

The Tax Collector’s office is located at Norwalk City Hall, 125 East Avenue, Norwalk, Conn. 06856, and is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The office does not close for lunch. Taxpayers are encouraged to pay by mail. Payments postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service on or before February 1, 2019, are timely, regardless of when the Tax Collector’s office received it.

Taxpayers may also find it convenient to pay in-person at one of 13 Norwalk bank branch locations of the following banks: Bankwell; Fairfield County Bank; M & T Bank; Norwalk Bank and Trust; Patriot National Bank; Webster Bank; and TD Bank. There is no charge for the service, and the taxpayer does not need to be a customer of the bank to pay but must bring their current tax bill. The banks only accept payments through February 1.

Taxpayers may also pay over the telephone using their card by calling toll-free 866-974-8090. Credit, debit, and ATM cards may also be used to pay in-person at City Hall. ACH payments (E-Check) payments may be made online. The charge for an E-Check is $1.50.

Failure to have received a tax bill does not exempt the taxpayer from interest charges. Interest is charged on all late payments, with absolutely no exception. Please call the Tax Collector’s office at (203) 854-7731 if you have not received your tax bill.
