The Town of Woodbridge is pleased to announce that residents can now use a credit card to pay their tax bills online (woodbridgect.org). Residents may still mail in checks or pay by cash or check in-person. The Tax Collector cannot accept credit card payments in person – only online.
Residents who choose to pay with a credit card online may use MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express. The credit card companies will charge the resident a 2.5% fee. “We are looking at ways to move official business to the internet to increase convenience for our residents,” says First Selectman Ellen Scalettar. “This new tax payment option is building on the success of the Recreation Department’s online registration system.”
“Residents are responding very enthusiastically to this change, and I encourage people to consider using the online system,” said Tax Collector Pat Crisco. “Of course, we are still happy to take payments in person.”
Tax bills are due on July 1, 2016 and residents have until August 1 to pay without penalty. Starting August 2, there is a state-mandated late fee of 1.5 percent from the due date, with a minimum interest charge of $2.
The Tax Collector’s office will be open for extended hours on Saturday July 30 from 9 am to noon and on Monday August 1 from 8:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. to accommodate taxpayers.
