When would my payment be considered late?

-A A +A

All property tax bills are due and payable on July 1. They must be paid or postmarked on or before August 1 to avoid interest charges. Interest begins accruing from the due date, July 1. An interest rate of 1 ½% per month (for a total of 18% per year) is applied to unpaid balances. Example: if payment is made or postmarked August 2 then the interest is 3%. Minimum interest charges are $2.00 per unpaid bill. Example: your bill includes 3 motor vehicles. Each vehicle tax will accrue an interest penalty separately (not on the total of the three bills). Please Note: In the Town of Pomfret, we combine your Town and Fire District bills but each is a separate entity. Therefore, the minimum charge of $2.00 will be charged for each entity (in other words, minimum interest charges will be $4.00 per bill). The January payment must be paid or postmarked on or before February 1.
