In cases of inclement weather, please call ahead. If City Hall is open, we are expected to be open, but in extreme weather, please call ahead to be sure.
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 January 1, 2020 installment. Those bills will be mailed in mid December 2019. If you wish to pay your second installment prior to receiving a bill in the mail in December, we will gladly process your payment at City Hall, and you may make that payment at any time.
Please do not attempt to pay your Norwalk property taxes at out of town banks.
Due Dates & Delinquent Notices
Tax bills for the first installment were due July 1, payable by Thursday, August 1, 2019. The second installment is due January 1, 2020, payable without interest by Monday, February 3, 2020 (because February 1 falls on a Saturday). Tax rates for these taxes were set on May 6, 2019. Taxes are based upon assessments as of October 1, 2018 (the grand list date).
A link to those rates is posted on the tax collector's home page.
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.
