Tax Collection

Mission

The mission of the Tax Collector is to collect all Real Estate, Personal Property, and Motor Vehicle tax revenue due to the City of Norwich in accordance with Connecticut State Statutes as well as provide taxpayers with information and assistance in a prompt and courteous manner. Tax bills are generated based on the mill rate set by the City Council in the adopted budget, and the Grand List (GL) provided by the assessor of all taxable property located in Norwich as of October 1 of each year.

This function is done by the Tax Collector, the Collector of Delinquent Taxes, and the Revenue Clerks.

PRESS RELEASE
From the 
Norwich Tax Collector’s Office

Tax bills for the City of Norwich 2021 Grand List will be mailed out June 29, 2022. Per CT State Statute, the due date for the tax bills is July 1, 2022.  Taxes can be made on or before August 1, 2022 without penalty.  Any payment made after August 1, 2022 will accrue interest at the rate of 1.5%, 18% per year, or $2.00, whichever is greater.

If you do not receive a bill in July please contact the Tax Office at 860-823-3760.

Per CT State Statute, failure to receive a tax bill does not negate the tax or the interest.

The City of Norwich has partnered with Bridgeport based People’s United Bank, to provide Norwich residents the option to make tax payments at all three People’s United branch locations in Norwich, including:

  • 624 West Main Street
  • 42 Town Street (inside Stop & Shop)
  • 45 Town Street

During the month of July, taxpayers can present their current Real Estate, Personal Property, or Motor Vehicle  at the People’s United branch of choice (including the drive-up window), where payment(s) can be processed via cash or check.  Delinquent taxes will not be accepted at bank locations and must be paid at the City Hall Tax Office located at 100 Broadway.

Taxpayers do not need to be a People’s United Bank customer to make their payment at a branch location.  This partnership provides greater access and convenience to taxpayers.

The City also offers online (http://norwichct.org/taxes), mail, and in-person payments during normal business hours.
