Tax Collection
Description
Tax bills are generated based on the mill rate set by the City Council in the adopted budget, and the Grand List provided from the Assessor.  The duty of the Tax Collector's office, is to then collect the taxes levied.  This function is done by the Tax Collector, the Collector of Delinquent Taxes, and the Revenue Clerks.
Notice of Changes
In an effort to help reduce the tax burden upon the citizens of the City of Norwich, if a taxpayer mails in a partial-bill payment or makes a partial-bill payment online, the Norwich Tax Collector's office will no longer be mailing a receipt back; his or her cancelled check or bank or credit card statement will serve as proof of payment.  
If you wish to get a receipt for any mailed-in payment you MUST include the entire tax bill and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. 

Drop Box
The drop box on the Broadway side of City Hall will be emptied at the beginning AND end of each business day.  Any payments left in the box after the Tax Collector's office closes will be considered as having been paid the following business day.
DELINQUENT TAX PAYMENTS DEPOSITED AFTER THE BOX HAS BEEN EMPTIED ON THE LAST BUSINESS DAY OF ANY MONTH, WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE NEXT MONTH'S INTEREST CHARGES.
PAYMENTS MADE AFTER THE END OF A 30-DAY GRACE PERIOD WILL BE SUBJECT TO 2 MONTHS' INTEREST (3%).
NO EXCEPTIONS

How to Look Up Taxes, Pay Taxes Online & Convenience Fees

Please note that the tax collector's office does NOT provide information over the phone for previously paid tax bills.  If you need to know what was paid last year for income tax reasons, you can look it up online for free by clicking on Tax Bill Inquiry and then using the "IRS Payment Records for Year 2016" option.  You may also stop in at the tax office and we will provide you a convenient, detailed printout of the information for $.50 per sheet.

Taxes can be paid directly from the Tax Bill Inquiry screen.
View your bill and click the green shopping cart under "Pay Online."

Payments are accepted from ACH, credit, or debit cards. Convenience fees apply.

The Real Estate tax bills include the Fire District Taxes. 
There is NOT a separate tax bill for Fire District Taxes!


Please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding paying your tax bills online when you have delinquent taxes and need a Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles "clearance" to register or reregister a vehicle.
