   Paying at Banks during the collection period:  Through August 3 only, 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 service is provided subject to the bank branches being open and able to accept transactions.  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. Please bring your most current tax statement with you to the bank branch. 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 are due July 1, 2020.  Under normal circumstances this installment would have been payable by August 1, 2020. However, in response to COVID-19,  the City of Norwalk and the State of Connecticut is allowing an extended grace period for most taxpayers and the last day to pay will be Thursday, October 1, 2020

  The second installment will be due January 1, 2021, payable by Monday, February 1, 2021.  Tax rates for these taxes were set on May 4, 2020.  Taxes were based upon assessments as of October 1, 2019 (the grand list date).  
 Tax bills for the grand list of October 1, 2020 (grand list date) will not be due until July 1, 2021, and January 1, 2022.  Tax rates for those taxes will be set on May 3, 2021.  More information about the budget process leading up to the billing of those property taxes can be found elsewhere on this website (Office of Management and Budgets).  Information about appealing those taxes may be found on the Tax Assessor's page on this website. 
Delinquent notices and demands for payment of past due taxes are  (normally) mailed in September (first installment) and in February (second installment).  Lien continuing certificates are filed in mid March. These dates are subject to change during 2020 due to COVID-19.
Please note: The term "demand" is prescribed by state statute,  and is not meant to imply rudeness toward the taxpayer.
