WEST HAVEN, April 3, 2018 — City residents who are delinquent on their motor vehicle taxes are urged to pay their overdue taxes before the “boot” program begins Sunday, April 15, or risk their vehicles being immobilized with a wheel-locking boot.
TaxServ Capital Services LLC of Hartford is the city’s vendor that administers the program in cooperation with Vioalert Systems LLC of West Haven.
Taxpayers can check if they owe back taxes and pay online at Tax Collector. They can also pay in person in the tax office on the first floor of City Hall, 355 Main St.
A vehicle-mounted ID system that is part of the boot program uses an infrared license plate scanner to target tax scofflaws. Vehicles are released of the boot once their owners pay all back taxes and boot fees.
Newly elected Tax Collector Dorothy Chambrelli is planning an aggressive campaign for collecting taxes.
“Please do not ignore your taxes; everyone must do their part,” Chambrelli said. “Your failure to pay negatively affects the entire city.”
Taxes accrue additional interest on the first day of each month.
