For July 2023 Collection
TAX BILLS WILL BE MAILED ON JUNE 30, 2023
Notice is hereby given to the taxpayers of the Town of Killingworth, that the first installment of Real Estate and Personal Property taxes on the Grand List of October 1, 2022, is due and payable on July 1, 2023. Motor Vehicle taxes are also due on July 1, 2023, in one installment.
If not paid on or before August 1, 2023, the installment becomes delinquent and subject to interest at a rate of 18% per annum (1 ½ % for each month or fraction thereof) dating back to the original due date of the bill. Two months of interest will be due on August 2, 2023. A minimum interest charge of $2.00 is applicable to each delinquent tax bill.
Checks should be made payable to: Tax Collector. Mail postmarked by the US Postal Service on or before August 1, 2023, will be considered an on-time payment. Payment can also be made online at www.townofkillingworth.com.
As a matter of law, the taxpayer is liable to the town for the tax installment(s) as they become due and payable. Liability is not created by, nor dependent upon receipt of a tax bill. Therefore, failure to receive a bill does not relieve the taxpayer of the requirement to pay the statutorily required interest when a late payment is made.
