   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:  When in effect,  taxpayers may pay their property tax bills at participating 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.   This remains subject to the branches being open and any other conditions (COVID 19 related) the branches choose to apply.  View more information and a list of participating banks.  This service will be available in late June 2021, once new tax bills are in the mail.  Please check back for updates. 

This option provides convenience and  flexibility and allows taxpayers who wish to have an in-person transaction to do so without the challenge of having to park at the City Hall campus.  You must bring your new tax statement with you to the bank branch.  Please do not attempt to pay your Norwalk property taxes at out of town banks.
