For January 2023 Collection
Notice is hereby given to the taxpayers of the Town of Killingworth, that the second installment of Real Estate and Personal Property taxes on the Grand List of October 1, 2021, is due and payable on January 1, 2023. Motor Vehicle Supplemental tax bills are also due on January 1, 2023, in one installment.
If not paid on or before February 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 February 2, 2023. A minimum interest charge of $2.00 is applicable to each delinquent tax bill.
You may pay by mail. Checks should be made payable to: Tax Collector. Mail postmarked on or before February 1, 2023 will be considered an on time payment. (US Postal Service postmark only.) You may also leave payments in the dropbox located next to the main door at Town Hall or pay 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 payment is late.
