New Online Billing System Makes Payment Easier
Mayor Marcia A. Leclerc and Tax Collector Iris Laurenza are reminding residents that the second installment of real estate, motor vehicle and personal property tax for the fiscal year is due effective January 1, 2017. Supplemental motor vehicle taxes are also due at this time. Residents wishing their payment to be marked as on time should complete or postmark payment on or before February 1, 2017. Late payments are subject to an interest charge of 1 1/2 % per month from the due date of January 1, 2017, with a minimum interest payment of $2.00.
Residents are reminded that failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse residents from paying the tax or added penalties. Residents with questions about vehicles which were sold, stolen or destroyed should contact the East Hartford Assessor’s Office at 860-291-7260. Residents requesting a receipt with mailed tax payments should include a self-addressed stamped envelope.
The Town recently rolled out a new online billing system, InvoiceCloud, which saves time, reduces errors, and allows paperless billing. Residents will be able to access their bill at any time, from anywhere. Residents who register can take advantage of payment scheduling and auto-pay features which save time and prevent missed bills. The new system can also send payment reminders by email or SMS text message and includes pay by text functionality for those who have set up a profile with a payment method. Residents can choose from a range of online payment options, including credit, debit, ACH and Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Please note that there may be fees associated with different online payment methods.
