Important news from the Tax Collector

Taxes

Greeting Willington Residents!

I hope you are all staying safe and well during this time of uncertainty.

With the second installment of Real Estate and Personal Property coming due and Motor Vehicle Supplemental bills sent out, I wanted to update you on payment procedures.

In compliance with State of CT Executive Order 9R, the Town of Willington has chosen to extend the grace period in which bills can be paid without penalty to April 1, 2021, excluding real estate accounts that are escrowed and Landlords. This means that, while taxes are due on January 1, 2021, no 2019 Grand List second installment or Motor Vehicle Supplemental bill will be charged interest until April 2, 2021. Interest will still be charged after April 1 at the state mandated rate of 1.5% per month or 18% per year. Any 2019 Grand List second installment or Motor Vehicle Supplemental bill not paid by April 1 will be charged 6% interest (4 months due). Please note that interest cannot be waived per CT State Statute 12-146.

Due to COVID-19, the Town Office Building will remain closed to the public until further notice. I strongly encourage all of you to make your payment by mail, by use of our drop box located outside the front entrance or online at www.willingtonct.org. Please note that there is a convenience fee of 2.95% for credit cards and $1.95 for EFT for online payments. 

If you need to make your payment in person, this will be done by appointment only. Please call the Revenue Department at (860)487-3111 to set up a time to come in.

I ask that Landlords contact the Revenue Department, at their earliest convenience, to determine if they qualify for the offered program.
