Tax Collector Reminder: Second Installment Payments Due by February 1st

Submitted by Sheri Berger, Haddam Tax Collector

(January 17, 2024) — The second installments for Real Estate, Personal Property and the full Motor Vehicle Supplemental bills are due by February 1, 2024.

Postmarked dates from the U.S. Postal Service are accepted. You can use the pre-addressed envelope that came in the July bill to mail a payment through the lockbox. Please be sure to enclose the tax bill with your payment. Payments can still be sent to the Town of Haddam, 30 Field Park Drive, Haddam CT 06438, or dropped off in the lockbox outside the Town Office Building to the right of the front door.  And as always, if you want to come in, we love seeing residents.

We do not mail out bills for the second installment for Real Estate or Personal Property. If you need a copy of your bill, visit www.haddam.org and search under Pay Taxes Online. You can print a copy of your original bill, pay a bill or see when a payment was made. You can always call, email or stop in for a copy.

If you bought a house, paid off your mortgage, or changed escrow companies after July 2023, please confirm with them on who is going to be paying the January 2024 installment. Please do not assume that we have the most current information. If you receive a bill for a vehicle you no longer have, contact us immediately. Once interest has accrued it cannot be removed.

Credit Card payments can be made in the office or online. We do not take payments over the phone. A service fee of 3% for payments made with a credit or debit card will be applied to all card transactions.  An electronic funds transfer can be set up online from a checking account for a flat fee of $1.50. Please put the current bill number on the memo line. It makes it easier for us to find with online checks from your bank.

If you are paying online, you will receive an email confirmation that your payment was made. If you do not receive one, or you’re not sure if your payment went through, please give your bank or the Tax Office a call before you try again. Online payments have to be manually processed in the office and will not be reflected on our website for a few days.

Any payments postmarked after February 1, 2024, will start to accrue interest at a rate of 1.5% a month from the original due date of January 1, 2024. To help keep interest down, partial payments can be made at any time.

If you would like to have a receipt mailed to you, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope and include a phone number. Mail the payment to the Tax Office at 30 Field Park Drive, Haddam CT 06438 or use the drop box located to the left of the front doors. Please make checks payable to Town of Haddam.

The Haddam Tax Collector’s office is open: Monday-Wednesday 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m., Thursday 8:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m., and Friday 8:30 a.m.-12:00 Noon.
