    The Tax Collector's office is responsible for the collection of all Real Estate, Personal Property, Motor Vehicle, Sewer Use and Sewer Assessment bills.

    Assessment date in Connecticut is October 1. All taxable property will generate a tax bill the following July. Any vehicle registered after October 1 through July 31 will generate a motor vehicle supplemental bill in January of the next year.

    If you believe you are missing a tax bill, you must contact the tax office. Failure to receive a tax bill shall not invalidate the tax or interest due. (Ct Statute Sec. 12-130).

    Payments

    Taxes are due July 1 and January 1. Both copies of the bills are mailed in July. There will be no bill sent for the January payment. As with all current municipal taxes, you have until the first business day of the following month to pay your taxes without interest. Interest is calculated at a rate of 1 ½ % per month from the due date (18% annually). The minimum interest charge is $2.00. For example, if a bill is paid August 4th the interest rate is 3% - 1 ½% for July and 1 ½% for August.

    Avoid Lines! Pay by Mail: A self-addressed stamped envelope is required if you wish to have a receipt. Make checks payable to the Town of Suffield. You may pay multiple bills with one check, except delinquent motor vehicle taxes. All outstanding motor vehicle tax bills must be paid by cash, money order or certified check before we will issue you a motor vehicle clearance.

    Helpful Hints: When making an address change with the Department of Motor Vehicles, be sure to change both your license and registration. All address changes must be made at DMV.
