Tax Collector

The Washington Tax Collector is responsible for billing and collecting municipal property taxes of real estate, personal property, and motor vehicles in accordance with Connecticut State Statutes.  Taxes are billed and collected semi-annually (July and January) on real estate and annually (July) on motor vehicles and personal property.  Supplemental Motor Vehicle tax bills are due January 1.  

Our goal is to help maintain the fiscal health of the Town of Washington by ensuring timely collections through proper implementation of CT statutes.

The Tax Collector’s office is also responsible for issuing transfer station stickers and signing Building Permit and Health Department tax verification forms.
