Dear Resident:

The Tax Collector's office is  located at 2750 Dixwell Ave, corner of Evergreen Ave. Office hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. Please take a minute to review the following information regarding your tax bill.

Real Estate, Motor Vehicle and Personal Property Bills are 3 part bills.

  • 1st Coupon to be returned with your July (first) payment

  • 2nd Coupon to be returned with your January (second) payment (if applicable)

  • Taxpayer Copy to be retained for your records and for income tax filing

If a bank or mortgage company is responsible for paying your Real Estate Taxes, please contact them if the Real Estate Tax Bill was mailed to you.

Some important information :

  • This will be the only tax bill that you will receive. If you are paying in two installments, please save the second coupon for the January installment, as no additional bill will be mailed at that time. Two installment bills may be paid in full in July.

  • Tax bills under $250.00 are due in one installment.

  • If payment is not made on or before Aug. 1st, 2013 the first installment will be delinquent. The second installment and/or the supplemental bill will be delinquent if payment is not made on or before Feb. 3rd, 2014. For payments made after these due dates, please call 203-287-7140 for the new total due.

  • Tax bills are subject to a penalty of 1½% per month (18% per annum) from the original due date of the installment. Minimum interest is $2.00. Connecticut law places the responsibility of prompt payment on the taxpayer even if you did not receive a bill. Please call us if you think you are missing a bill.

  • We encourage you to pay by mail. Our mailing address for July and January only: PO Box 150426 Hartford, CT 06115-0426. For the remainder of the year, please send to us directly: 2750 Dixwell Ave, Hamden, CT 06518. Envelopes must be postmarked prior to the delinquent date to be considered on time.
