Supplemental Motor Vehicles

Supplemental Motor Vehicle Taxes Due January 1st of Each Year.

As always, you have until the first of February to pay your bill without a penalty.

The Tax Collector is reminding taxpayers that supplemental motor vehicle taxes on the Grand List of October 1st of each year are due in full January 1st and payable by February 1st. Unpaid taxes will be considered delinquent on February 2nd. On that date, interest will be charged from the original due date of January 1st. Interest is charged at a rate of 18% per year, with a minimum of $2.00, in accordance with the provisions of C.G.S. Sec. 12-146.

Failure to receive a tax bill does not invalidate the tax or any interest due, should it become delinquent. Taxpayers who do not receive their tax bill should contact the office at (860) 779-5330 or by clicking here, to obtain a copy.

Cash, certified bank check, or money order will be required when paying past-due motor vehicle taxes. Personal checks will not be accepted if a DMV clearance is needed.  Online payment will clear within 48 hours.

Supplemental motor vehicle bills are for any newly registered vehicle after October 1st. Vehicles are assessed based on the month they were first registered through September 30th. If this vehicle replaces a vehicle on the regular October 1st Grand List, a credit for that vehicle will show on this bill. If this vehicle has been sold, destroyed, stolen, or registered in another state, please contact the Assessor’s Office.
