Welcome to the West Hartford Tax Office

Motor Vehicle Tax Bills Delayed 

Due to the uncertainty concerning possible legislation that could result in a change to the uniform state-wide motor vehicle mill rate, the mailing of the motor vehicle tax bills will be delayed until such time as final legislation is adopted by the State of Connecticut.

As soon as information is available, including the date that the motor vehicle bills will be mailed and the due date of the bills, that information will be posted on this page, the West Hartford home page, www.westhartfordct.gov and also made available by calling the West Hartford Tax Office automated phone line: (860) 561-7474.

As mandated by Connecticut General Statutes 12-146, you will have a one-month grace period from the established due date to pay the bill without interest.  

 

Tax bills are mailed twice each year:

  • first installment bills are mailed mid-to-late June and are due no later than the first business day in August
  • second installment bills are mailed mid-to-late December and are due no later than the first business day in February

Please see Frequently Asked Questions for additional information about due dates and penalties.

The 2017-2018 mill rates are:

         41.04 mills for real estate and business personal property (pertains to bills due July 1, 2017 and January 1, 2018).

         32.00 mills for motor vehicles (Mill rate subject to change, and due date to be determined).

It's now fast and easy to pay and/or view your bills online.

The Town of West Hartford is excited to offer residents an easy and secure way to view, print and pay their tax bills online.  We support electronic presentment and billing because it is more convenient for residents and better for the environment.

Online Bill Payment, in partnership with Invoice Cloud, offers the following benefits:

  • You can pay with electronic check or credit/debit card
  • You have the option to pay immediately or schedule a payment

A $0.90 fee will be charged when paying by electronic check/ACH.  Use of a charge card will incur a convenience fee of 2.95% with a minimum charge of $1.00.  The Town of West Hartford receives only your bill payment amount.  Convenience fees cover various administrative costs associated with accepting payments and are non-refundable.

The convenience fee amount is automatically calculated and is shown on the payment page before you submit your payment for processing.  Convenience fees will appear as a separate charge from the bill amount on your bank or credit card statement.

If you need help using online bill pay or you have a question about your account, please call (860)561-7474, option 4.
