Norwich will not send its motor vehicle bills in July

The City of Norwich is delaying the issuance of its motor vehicle tax bills until the State of Connecticut approves a budget and sets the rules for the mill rates for motor vehicles.  Motor vehicle bills will be due October 1, 2017 and payable on or before November 1, 2017 without interest.  If payment is not made by November 1, 2017, the interest of 1.5% per month will accrue going back to the original due date of October 1, 2017, with a minimum interest charge of $2.00, or 3%, whichever is greater.

Taxpayers should note that the DMV does not notify the City when a motor vehicle is sold (not including registration transfers), stolen, destroyed, repossessed, etc.  Taxpayers who experienced one of these situations since October 1, 2016 should contact the Assessor’s Office as soon as possible to see whether the bill can be prorated and what information is necessary to do so.  Their direct number is (860) 823-3723.

No change in the timing of other property taxes

Real estate and commercial personal property bills will be mailed out as they normally are.  The first installment will become due July 1, 2017 and payable without interest on or before August 1, 2017.  The second installment, if applicable, will be due January 1, 2018 and payable without interest on or before February 1, 2018.  Real estate and commercial personal property taxes will be calculated using the approved mill rates of 48.74 for property in the City Consolidation District and 40.67 mills for property in the Town Consolidation District. 

The best way for taxpayers to avoid lines is by either paying online or by mail with a check or money order.  The fees for online payments vary depending on the type of payment used from $0.50, $3.95, or 3%. The Tax Office does accept the US postmark, so any payments postmarked on or before August 1, 2017 will be considered timely.  If a receipt is desired please include a self-addressed stamped envelope.

Payments can be made in the Tax Office by check, cash, money order and debit/credit cards (additional fees do apply).   There also is a drop box available at the main Broadway entrance to City Hall.  The Tax Office is open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, 100 Broadway, Norwich CT 06360 and can be contacted at (860) 823-3760.
