WEST HAVEN, Jan. 16, 2019 — The second installment of the city’s real estate, personal property, and motor vehicle tax and sewer bills were due Jan. 1, and payments after Feb. 1 are considered delinquent and subject to interest, Tax Collector Dorothy Chambrelli said.
Taxpayers of the Allingtown Fire District received a revised bill for both real estate and personal property because the current levy is insufficient to pay expenses for the current fiscal year, Chambrelli said.
Pursuant to statutory requirements and as required in the five-year plan adopted by the state Municipal Accountability Review Board, the City Council approved an increase of 0.94 mill to the current Allingtown mill rate, resulting in an increase from 13.06 to 14 mills.
The revised bill replaces the second half of the 2017 grand list bill, which was due Jan. 1. The motor vehicle bill remains the same, Chambrelli said.
The 2017 supplemental motor vehicle bill is for vehicles registered after Oct. 1, 2017.
The tax office is open 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays on the first floor of City Hall, 355 Main St. 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 at 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.
