City Offers Low Interest Rate on January Tax Bills

Rate is in effect only for bills due on January 1st

On January 1, 2021 the second installment of the 2019 grand list Real Estate and Personal Property bills become due along with the 2019 grand list Motor Vehicle Supplemental bills. 

Due to the pandemic, the City of Norwich has opted to lower the interest rate on the bills described above, for a short period of time.  During the months of January, February and March the interest rate has been reduced to 0.25% on any payment made/postmarked after 2/1/2021.  The interest will revert back to 1.5% on any unpaid balance as of 4/1/21 and will be recalculated back to the original 1/1/21 due date.  

 The City of Norwich continues to encourage taxpayers to pay their taxes remotely if at all possible.  Payments can still be made at any Norwich Peoples United Bank at the following locations:

  •  624 West Main Street
  • 42 Town Street (inside Stop & Shop)
  • 45 Town Street

During the month of January, Taxpayers can present their current Real Estate, Personal Property,  or Motor Vehicle Supplemental tax bills  at the People’s United branch of choice (including the drive-up window), where payment(s) can be processed via cash or check.  Delinquent taxes will not be accepted at bank locations and must be paid at the City Hall tax office located at 100 Broadway.

Taxpayers do not need to be a People’s United Bank customer to make their payment at a branch location.  This partnership provides greater access and convenience to taxpayers.

The City also offers other payment options.  Payments can be made online, through the mail and in-person.  Fees for credit or debit card payments do apply, but there is no fee for online ACH/Electronic check payments in the month of January.

The Norwich Tax Office hours are subject to change.  Please refer to our website for the most accurate hours we will be available for in-person payments.
