Motor Vehicle Tax Bills Are Due November 1st, 2017
The last day to pay without penalty is Friday December 1st, 2017. The tax office will be open on Friday December 1st from 8:30am to 4:30pm.
As you may know, the Town of West Hartford delayed mailing the motor vehicle bills due to the uncertainty concerning possible legislation which could result in a change to the uniform state-wide motor vehicle mill rate. Unfortunately, the State budget is still uncertain and the Town can no longer postpone the issuance of motor vehicle tax bills.
Tax bills will be mailed on October 6th and the due date is November 1st, 2017. The last day to pay without penalty is Friday December 1st. The bill is based on the current State legislation of 32 mills. Should this change when the final State budget is adopted, it may be necessary to adjust your tax levy and issue a supplemental tax bill at a later date.
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.
