Tax Collector Happenings and Information

Is Your Motor Vehicle Tax Bill Being Mailed to the Wrong Address?
If your mailing address is not correct with DMV, it may cause a delay in getting your motor vehicle tax bills to you in a timely manner.  If you notify the Assessor or Tax Collector about a change of address, it still needs to be done through DMV.  DMV has recently made it possible to update your address online.  You may also print off the change of address form and mail in as well.  Please click on the link below to bring you to the CT DMV website for further instructions.
