Paying at Banks during the collection period:  Taxpayers may pay their property tax bills at certain Norwalk bank branch offices.  You do not have to be a customer of the bank in order to pay there, and there is no charge for this service.   View more information and a list of participating banks.   This option provides convenience and  flexibility - taxpayers who wish to have an in-person transaction may do so without the challenge of having to park at City Hall.  You will be able to make use of this service as soon as you receive your new tax bill  for the July 1, 2019 installment.   Those bills were mailed on June 19, 2019.   Please do not attempt to pay your Norwalk property taxes at out of town banks.

Delinquent notices and demands for payment of past due taxes are mailed in September (first installment) and in February (second installment).  Lien continuing certificates are filed in mid March.
 
Please note: The term "demand" is prescribed by state statute,  and is not meant to imply rudeness toward the taxpayer.
