TOWN OF WASHINGTON
TAX COLLECTOR'S NOTICE

Notice is hereby given that TAXES on the grand list of October 1, 2007 are DUE AND PAYABLE on January 1, 2009. The last day on which to pay without penalty is Monday, February 2, 2009. Taxes are due at the following mill rate thirteen (13) mills

Late payments will be subject to interest penalty at the rate of one and one half percent per month or fraction thereof, (18 percent per annum), from the due date of the tax (July 1, 2008), as required by Conn. Gen. Stat. 12-130, 145 and 146.

Payments received February 2, 2009 and later, including payments postmarked February 2 and later, are considered past due. The minimum interest charge is $2 on each tax bill (the minimum interest applies to bills in the amount of 66.50 and under). The fee for returned checks is $20 plus postage

The second installment of real estate and personal property tax bills in excess of $100, are currently due. Motor vehicle tax bills, and all other bills less than $100, are currently due in a single installment.

As owners of property, taxpayers are responsible to see that taxes are paid when due. Failure to have received a bill does not exempt the taxpayer from payment of all taxes and all interest charges and collection costs, as per Conn. Gen. Stat. 12-130 and 12-146. INTEREST IS CHARGED ON ALL LATE PAYMENTS. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POLICY.

When paying in person: Bring your bill(s) with you. Bills may be paid at the Tax Collector's Office in Bryan Memorial Town Hall from 9:00 a.m. to Noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. Special Hours: Saturday January 31, 2009 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Whether paying by mail or in person please include the appropriate portion of your tax bill(s) with your payment. Payments are mailed to Washington Tax Collector, P.O. Box 383, Washington Depot, CT 06794. For a return receipt please enclose a SELF-ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE with your payment and coupon.

The Tax collector's Office makes every effort to show all your past due accounts, if any, on a statement included with your new bills. Any past due taxes must be paid in full before payment on current bills can be accepted. Any payment you remit will be applied to past due taxes and interest charges first.

If real estate taxes remain unpaid as of May 31, 2009, tax liens will be applied in accordance with state statute. If you do not receive a bill for taxes owed by the first week in July or January in the case of supplemental motor vehicle bills, please contact the Tax Collector's Office immediately.

If motor vehicle taxes remain unpaid, you will be unable to renew vehicle registrations with the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles, per Conn. Gen. Stat. 14-33. Past due motor vehicle taxes must be paid in full by cash, cashiers' check or money order in order to receive immediate DMV clearance. All outstanding vehicle taxes in your name, including taxes not yet delinquent, must be paid in full in order for a release to be issued.

If you do not receive a tax bill you are supposed to pay, or if you have any questions about the bill you received, please call the Tax Collector's Office at (860) 868-7796 or fax your correspondence to (860) 868-3103 or email at tax@washingtonct.org.

Dear Washington Residents,

Keeping you informed is a top priority of the TOWN of WASHINGTON OFFICIALS. That’s why we have adopted the ALERTNOW Notification Service which will allow us to send a telephone or e-mail message to you providing important information about Town or Area emergencies. We are using ALERTNOW (the same system in use by Regional 12 School District, however the Region and Town data bases are different) to notify you of Town emergencies that need your attention or knowledge. In the event of an emergency you can have peace of mind knowing that you will be informed by your Town Officials immediately by phone, email or other notification that you authorize.

What you need to know about receiving calls sent through ALERTNOW

* Caller ID will display 411 to notify you that the message is a dire local emergency.
* ALERTNOW will leave a message on any answering machine or voicemail.
* If the ALERTNOW message “cuts off” halfway through, there is too much background noise. Utilize the mute button or cover the receiver and the message will begin playing again from the start.

The successful delivery of information is dependent upon accurate contact information for each local resident . So please…make certain that we have your most current contact phone numbers and email addresses. If this information changes during the year, please let us know immediately.

We are very excited to incorporate ALERTNOW as a tool to improve local emergency communication and look forward to having the ability to deliver real time information to you and provide awareness of emergencies that takes place within the Town.

Regards,
R.J. “Rocky” Tomlinson, Emergency Management Director


An ALERTNOW Contact Form is provided for your use, in MS Word format.

    REVALUATION INSPECTIONS

    WASHINGTON- The process of gathering information for the upcoming revaluation - due October 1, 2008 - is continuing. Jonathan Wells, a representative of Total Valuation Service will be the person coming to your door. He will carry identification from the Town of Washington. Since this is the first time since 1989 that interior inspections will be required, the cooperation of residents is encouraged. If his visit comes at an inconvenient time, there will be an opportunity to make an appointment.

    The purpose of revaluations is to price properties at their true and actual value. This is usually referred to as fair market value and the assessment will be seventy percent (70%) of that figure.

    There has been a change in the market since the last revaluation in 2003 and there well may be another change before fall 2008. Sales for the past year or two will be analyzed to arrive at equitable values.

    Inspections should be completed by the end of August. The last three sections of town are scheduled as follows: Late-May: Bryan Plaza, Church Hill Road (Rt. 109), Cook Street, Fenn Hill Road, Lower Church Hill Road, River Road, Shinar Mountain Road, South Fenn Hill Road, Steeples Road, Steeples Road South, Sunrise Lane, Walker Brook Road South, West Church Hill Road, Winston Drive and Worcester Road.

    Early-June: Birch Hill Run, Blackville Road, Brinsmade Road, Chestnut Lane, Couch Road, Dodge Farm Road, Garland Road, Hinkle Road, Litchfield Turnpike (Rt. 202), Mt. Tom Road, Rabbit Hill Road, Revere Road, Romford Road, Senff Road, Shearer Road, Turner Road, Valley Road, Warren Road (Rt. 341), West Morris Road, Whittlesey Road and Wilbur Road.

    Mid-July: Anna Jay Lane, Ash Swamp Road, Church Street, East Shore Road, Findlay Road, Flirtation Avenue, Golf Links Road, Gunn Hill Road, Hinckley Road, June Road, Loomarwick Road, Main Street, Mountain Road, New Milford Turnpike (Rt. 202), New Preston Hill Road, No. Sawyer Hill Road, Perkins Road, Pleasant View Drive, Sandstrom Road, Schwab Road, Tinker Hill Road and West Shore Road.

    REVALUATION INSPECTIONS

    The process of gathering information for the upcoming revaluation - due October 1, 2008 - is continuing into the second section. Jonathan Wells, a representative of Total Valuation Service will be the person coming to your door. He will carry identification from the Town of Washington. Since this is the first time since 1989 that interior inspections will be required, the cooperation of residents is encouraged. If his visit comes at an inconvenient time, there will be an opportunity to make an appointment.

    The purpose of revaluations is to price properties at their true and actual value. This is usually referred to as fair market value and the assessment will be seventy percent (70%) of that figure.

    There has been a change in the market since the last revaluation in 2003 and there well may be another change before 2008. Sales for the past year or two will be analyzed to arrive at equitable values.

    Inspections for the following areas of Town will begin in mid-April. Baldwin Hill Road, Bee Brook Road, Buffum Road, Calhoun Street, Christian Street, Foulois Road, Hifield Drive, Ives Road, Kielwasser Road, Kinney Hill Road, Myfield Lane, Mygatt Road, Popple Swamp Road, Scofield Hill Road, Slaughterhouse Road, Sunset Lane, Top Pasture Road, Upper Church Hill Road, Walker Brook Road North and Wheaton Road.
