WEST HAVEN, March 9, 2018 — A Tax Collector’s Demand is a delinquent notice informing a taxpayer that as of a given date, the tax office’s records indicate that past-due taxes are owed.
Interest charges on the statement are calculated through the date shown on the statement. Please note that the term “demand” is prescribed by state statute and is not meant to imply rudeness toward a taxpayer.
The 2016 grand list motor vehicle bills were mailed in June 2017 and were due in July 2017 and January 2018.
After the initial motor vehicle bills were issued, the state legislature raised the motor vehicle mill rate cap from 32 to 39 mills. As a result, an additional yellow bill was mailed in December 2017. The yellow bill was mailed with instructions to pay both the second installment of the 2016 grand list bill and the yellow bill.
For clarification, taxpayers can see their tax bills, make a payment, and print their payment history for income tax purposes at Tax Collector. Sewer bills are on the same page but under a separate heading.
Those with questions after reviewing their payment can call or visit the tax office on the first floor of City Hall, 355 Main St. The phone number is 203-937-3525; calls are returned from 4:30-5 p.m. weekdays after closing to the public.
A $5 fee has been added to all accounts reported to the state Department of Motor Vehicles.
Other fees that may be added include those of a collection agency, an attorney or a state marshal. Costs include a possible “boot” fee, a warrant fee or a lien fee on real estate and sewer delinquencies, as well as any other fees allowed by law.
