important notice about your motor vehicle tax bills

Taxpayers in the State of Connecticut need to look at their tax bills due in July as soon as they are received in order to ensure that they are being taxed from the correct city/town.

The CT Department of Motor Vehicles and municipalities across the state are working to resolve some inconsistencies among residents' mailing addresses and domicile addresses (the town in which the vehicle is garaged.) If you receive a tax bill from a town that you DID NOT RESIDE IN or GARAGE YOUR VEHICLE IN as of OCTOBER 1, 2015, contact the Tax Assessor of that town to request a transfer to the correct city/town of residency as of October 1, 2015.

If you do not receive a tax bill for each vehicle you had registered at October 1, 2015, contact the Tax Assessor in your city/town. Non-receipt of a tax bill does not invalidate the tax nor eliminate the interest that must be charged for a late payment.
