Tax Collector

We anticipate the 2021 Grand List tax bills to be mailed on June 22, 2022.  Tax bills will also be viewable and payable online starting June 23, 2022.  The tax office will begin accepting payments in person on June 23, 2022.


The first installment of tax on the 2021 Grand List for Real Estate and Personal Property tax is due July 1, 2022. Motor Vehicle taxes are also due July 1, 2022 in one installment.

If any payment due July 1, 2022 is not paid or USPS postmarked on or before August 1, 2022, such tax becomes delinquent and subject to interest of 1 ½% per month or fraction thereof from the due date. Minimum interest $2.00.

Town Hall hours are Monday-Wednesday 8:30-4:30, Thursday 8:30-6:30 and Friday 8:30-noon. Please visit for updates on hours of operation and/or unexpected closures.

Preferred method of payment is personal check, certified or bank check. We do not take credit or debit cards at the office. 

  • A secured “Tax Payment Drop” is located on the exterior wall of the Tax Collector’s Office, left hand side of the Main Entrance across from the Police Department. All payments dropped off after normal business hours will be credited the next business day.
  • To Pay by Mail: Please make check payable to Town of Madison, PO Box 587, Madison CT 06443. We honor the USPS Postmark. Payments postmarked on or before August 1, 2022 will be considered an on-time payment. Have your envelope hand-canceled at the US Post Office. Electronic bill-pay services processed using your personal bank arrive via the US mail in an envelope bearing no postmark. Please keep in mind if there is no postmark, timeliness depends sole upon our receipt of the payment. 
  • People’s United Bank offers in-branch tax payment processing during the months of July 2022 and January 2023 for current tax bills. Original tax bill must be provided at time of processing.
  • Online: To pay by credit card, debit card or electronic check visit: or to pay by phone call 855-857-3353. There is a convenience fee charged by Point & Pay for online/phone payment service.

Failure to receive a tax bill does not invalidate the tax. If you did not receive a tax bill, please call the Tax Collector’s Office 203-245-5641 or visit
