Taxpayers in the Town of Montville are hereby notified that I have a warrant to collect a Tax of 32.51 on the dollar for Real Estate, Personal Property, and Motor Vehicles on the Grand List of October 1, 2018.  Motor Vehicle and Personal Property bills are due in FULL July 1, 2019.  Real Estate bills may be paid in two installments: July 1, 2019 and January 1, 2020.  There is only one mailing of tax bills, you may sign up on the town website for an email reminder to pay your second installment.

Tax Collector's Delinquent Notices/Demands

Tax Collector's Delinquent Notices:

Past due notices are sent to taxpayers semiannually, usually February and September, in addition to the semiannual tax billings, which are sent in June and December for motor vehicles and only in June for real estate and personal property. Delinquent notices are sent on colored paper to get your attention.

 

Tax Collector's Demands:

A Tax Collector’s Demand is a delinquent notice informing you that as of a given date, our records indicate you owe past due taxes. Interest charges on the statement are calculated through the date shown on the statement. The notice you received reflects payments through a certain date only.

Demand Notices per Town Council Resolution #2018-43 shall be sent by the Tax Collector March 1st, 2019.

Demand Notices sent in March 2019 show charges, including interest due through March 31st, 2019 and that it is the duty of the Collector to initiate proceedings with enforcement measures as prescribed by Connecticut State General Statute Section 12-181.

Please note: The term “demand” is prescribed by state statute, and is not meant to imply rudeness towards you as a taxpayer.

 

Collection Methods:

When taxes are not paid in full by the last day to pay, by state law, it becomes the duty of the collector to proceed with collection enforcement measures, as prescribed by state statute.

The Tax Collector’s Office reserves the right to enforce collection of taxes by use of any of the following methods, which include but are not limited to:

    • Denial of building permits
    • Denial or revocation of any license or permit required in the operation of a business, including a health permit
    • Denial or suspension of motor vehicle registration renewals per CGS 14-33
