First is your Real Estate Lender escrowing your taxes? if so the bills will go to them for payment if they have notified us that they are taking the responsibility. Second did you pay off your mortgage recently? If so you must stop by the Tax Office and sign a form taking over responsibility for paying the Real Estate tax (and receive the tax bills) and so we can remove your lender from the escrow responsibility list for your real estate. Did you just sell or buy the property in question? Then the new owner is responsible for the outstanding taxes. Make sure that tax liability is clarified with your closing attorneys, the Town does not get involved with this.
The number one reason for not getting your Motor Vehicle tax bill is that your registration with the DMV had expired when the bills were generated. Re-register your vehicle with the DMV and you should get a supplemental or regular tax bill when they are generated 2 times a year (July and January). DMV registration issues can include: Plate changes, emissions test failures or non-compliance, changes of address, wrong domicile classification (What Town your vehicle is registered in) Orange is Town 107, Death of one of the owners and subsequent owner redesignation, and #1 failure to register your vehicle on time. Check online at the CT Department of Motor Vehicle website to verify your information before coming to the Tax Office. DMV errors must be cleared first since our data source is the CT DMV database.
