East Haven Town Taxes Are Now Due

Residents and property owners can now view their municipal property tax account online, as well as make their payments online as well.

The New Year's celebration for 2013 has come and gone, which means so has Jan. 1: the date municipal taxes are due.

And time is running out to make that payment for the second installment for all real estate, personal property and supplemental motor vehicle taxes on the Grand List of Oct. 1, 2011 — before accounts are considered delinquent.

Tax payments must be in the mail or paid in person to the Town of East Haven Tax Department, 250 Main Street, by Feb. 1. Bills not paid by that time will be marked as past due.

If you lost or did not receive your tax bill, call 203–468–3307 to get a copy.

Online Tax Payments

In addition to the mail and in-person payments, the East Haven Tax Department also accepts online payments via credit cards and E-checks.

And there are three different ways to pay:

The East Haven jurisdiction code is "1782" for the Officials Payments service.

Town officials note, however, that the taxpayer is responsible for all fees associated with online payments.

New Tool to View Tax Bills Online

Additionaly, a new service became available to East Haven taxpayers last month. Through the online service, residents can view their property tax bills, print a duplicate record from a computer and see at any payments that have been made on an account.

Here is how it works:

1. Just click this link www.mytaxbill.org for East Haven
2. Click the "I AGREE" button on the first screen.
3. Enter one of the following: Bill Number or Property Location or Tax Payer Name.
4. Make selections at the bottom and click the "Search" button.
5. Then all your Revenue Records will be listed at the bottom of the screen.
6. Click on a blue "Bill #UID" and view, save, or print the bill record.

More Information

You can call 203–468–3307 with questions regarding tax collection issues. If you have questions regarding real estate assessment, call the Assessor's Office at 203–468–3233.

The East Haven Tax Department is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

More information can also be found on the tax department's page on the town website.

The East Haven Tax Department should wise up to the fact that MANY East Haven residents CHEAT the Town's Motor Vehicle tax by blatantly registering their motor vehicles in other towns or simply simply don't register their vehicles at all, via misuse of Dealer plates and other types of chicanery (vehicles registered to out of town LLC's, family trusts, etc). There are potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars of lost revenue here. Unregistered motor vehicles aren't so much of a problem now with the high tech East Haven police cars automatically scanning plates and pulling over anybody with a questionable registration. This happened to a friend of mine (Caucasian) the other day whose registration was fine but who was late in paying his car tax. Pulled over, ticketed and lucky not to have been towed. Had to drive straight home and park his car in the driveway. He now has to his pay overdue town tax asap and possibly a re-registeration fee to State DMV before he can "legally" drive his car again. With regard to the Tax Cheats, there should to be a way of cross referencing all licensed drivers residing in East Haven against any vehicles (or lack of) registered in their names or their spouses names. Those East Haven residents WITHOUT any vehicles taxed by East Haven certainly warrant a closer look.

In my homeland "tax cheats" are not dealt with lightly. They are dragged though the streets by jackasses. Many are later beaten within an inch of their miserable lives. There's no room for TAX CHEATS in the new world order JA always caring, always wise!

Want to collect over due taxes. Make a press release that in 30 days all names of those who owe back taxes will be published. Everyone. See how fast these taxes are paid.. Those in a financial difficulty, the town should make some sort of payment plan with them until caught up.

Yup got to pay that tax bill. No promised 17% tax roll back in sight! Taxpayers been lied to again as usual. Think we should roll back the election instead. Seems folks in this burg jes like being told a fairy tale. Fools will believe anything they promised and then when the promises are empty they do nothin. McCann startin some third party jes so his buddy Sgt. Shultz Depalma can run for mayor. All he wants to do is increase spendning. Spend more money at the PD. The third party we needs in this here burg is a TAXPAYERS REVOLT PARTY. Time to make all government in town accountable for how they spend our money. Look at that their bored of education. Its become a family employment agency. Time to make big cuts in town government then we get our tax decrease we all needs. Folks can hardly afford heat and food and fool politicians want to rob their wallets more.
