Per State Statutes 7-148 & 12-130 thru 12-163, the Tax Collector has the responsibility to collect all taxes due to the Town of East Haven and to apply interest and fees on delinquent accounts.  We are also instructed to use the tools (State Marshals, Collection Agencies) given to us to collect all delinquent accounts.

 

It is the responsibility of the tax payer to pay your tax bills on time.  You will only receive one bill per year.  If your bill is $200.00 or more for the year you will have two coupons attached to the bill.  It is your choice to pay the bill in 1 or 2 installments. The 2019 Grand List Tax Bills will be due July 1, 2020.  You is a 30 day grace period and all bills will be considered Delinquent after August 3, 2020. Interest is accrued at 1 ½% per month.  The 2nd installment will be due on January 1, 2021, it will be your responsibility to remember to pay your bill in January 2021. After each grace period, Delinquent Demand Notices will be mailed out.  Failure to meet your responsibility to pay your taxes could result in your account being given to a collection agency.
