The following is an announcement from the office of the first selectwoman:
The Town of Wilton tax collector has mailed tax bills for real estate, personal property, and all motor vehicle taxes due for Fiscal Year 2019.
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 (payment must be received or postmarked by Aug. 1, 2018 to avoid an interest penalty). Real estate taxes and personal property in excess of $100 are due in two equal installments on July 1, 2018 and Jan. 1, 2019. If you receive a supplemental motor vehicle tax bill in December, it is due on Jan. 1, 2019.
Paying your Town of Wilton taxes is easy and convenient. Pay on-line on the Town of Wilton website for only $.50 cents for a bank account transaction. Payments can also be made by credit card for an additional 3% fee and by debit card for a fee of $3.95. Save the stamp, save on gas.
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 you from registering any vehicle until released by the Tax Collector.
If you send payment through your financial institution’s electronic bill pay service, please be advised that checks must be received by the Tax Collector by the last day to pay or you will be charged interest. Electronic bill pay service payments are not postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service and as such postmarks cannot be used to record receipt of payment. You should process your electronic bill payment transaction at least 10 days prior to the last day to pay to ensure your payment reaches the Tax Collector’s office on time.
Taxes are also payable in person or by mail at the Tax Collector’s office. The Tax Collector’s office is located at Wilton Town Hall, 238 Danbury Road, Wilton, CT and office hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.. Payments may be mailed to Town of Wilton, Tax Collector, P.O. Box 135, Wilton, CT 06897.
