WEST HAVEN, Dec. 1, 2016 — The second installment of the city’s tax bills — real estate, motor vehicle, personal property and sewer — on the 2015 grand list is due Jan. 1, Tax Collector Eric Murillo said.
The 2015 supplemental motor vehicle bills, which are being mailed, are also due Jan. 1.
Payments after Feb. 1 are considered delinquent and subject to interest, Murillo said.
The tax office is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the first floor of City Hall, 355 Main St.
For the convenience of taxpayers, the city has an ATM outside the office.
Taxpayers can see their tax bills, make a payment, and print their payment history for income tax purposes by clicking on Tax Collector.
Sewer bills are on the same page but under a separate heading.
In January, current taxes can be paid by mail to a tax office lockbox, P.O. Box 150461, Hartford, CT 06115-0461. When paying by lockbox or the drop box outside the tax office in City Hall, the canceled check is the receipt.
After Feb. 1, taxes with interest can be paid by mail to the Office of the Tax Collector, P.O. Box 401, West Haven, CT 06516. Payments can also be made in person.
Anyone needing a motor vehicle clearance must pay in person with cash, credit card, bank check or money order.
Those with questions about assessments or vehicles they no longer own should contact the assessor’s office prior to paying their tax bills at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-937-3515, ext. 1004, 1005 or 1007.
