Municipal property taxes due
Tax bills for real estate and property taxes have been mailed for Fiscal Year 2018. The tax collector sent one bill reflecting payments due on July 1, 2017, and Jan. 1, 2018.
Taxes may be paid online at wiltonct.org for 50 cents for a bank account transaction.
Real estate and personal property tax bills of $100 or less, and all motor vehicle taxes are due in a single installment on July 1. Real estate taxes and personal property in excess of $100 are due in two equal installments on July 1 and Jan. 1. Supplemental motor vehicle tax bills received in December, are due on Jan 1.
Payments not made within one month of the due dates are delinquent and incur interest at the rate of 1.5% per month from the due dates. Delinquent motor vehicle taxes will prevent the owner from registering any vehicle until released by the tax collector. Motorists who need a release must pay their delinquent taxes in cash. If paid online or by check, there is a waiting period of 10 business days.
Taxes are also payable in person or by mail at the tax collector’s office in town hall at 238 Danbury Road. Office hours are 8:30 to 4:30, Monday through Friday.
