After a number of years, the City of Norwich turns over unpaid motor vehicle and personal property tax bills to Rossi Law Offices, Ltd. of Smithfield, RI for collection. If you receive a notice from the collection agency regarding delinquent taxes, you must contact them and make arrangements to pay. You can contact them by phone at (800) 647-6774 or online. Once those taxes are paid in full, contact our office as there is a possibility you may also still owe taxes that have not yet been sent to collection.
Please Note: Homeowners who still owe for past refuse are not exempt from principal, interest or liens on their properties. If you think that you may have a balance due for refuse collection, please contact the Tax Collector's Office.
