Pay in Person

 The Tax Collector's Office will close EARLY - at 12:15 pm - on Thursday September 22, 2022  and will re open at 8:30 am on Friday September 23.   There will be no in person service, and no one available to respond to telephone calls, until Friday morning.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.

We are located in Room 105 on the first floor of City Hall.  Enter through the main entrance, and the security guard will direct you.  

You may pay your taxes with a check, money order, cash, debit card, credit card, or ATM card.  

The last day to pay the second installment without interest was Monday, August 1, 2022. 


    The requirement to wear a face mask that covers your nose and mouth is no longer in effect in Norwalk City Hall.  

Please contact the Mayor's Office, or refer to the Mayor's COVID 19 updates, for details about this policy  and recent updates and directives about mask wearing at City owned facilities and other COVID 19 policies.  Please try to

 stay six feet away

   If you are not feeling well,  please choose another day to come, or make your payment remotely.

   Paying at Banks during the collection period:  This service ended on August 1, 2022.  For the future, you may be able to pay your property taxes in person at one of 10 participating bank branches within Norwalk.  This service was available only through August 1, 2022.  We hope to be able to offer this service again in December 2022 for the second installment.  You do not have to be a customer of the bank in order to pay there, and there is no charge for this service.  This remains subject to any conditions (COVID 19 related) the branches choose to apply.  View more information and a list of participating banks.  This provides convenience and flexibility, and allows taxpayers who wish to have an in-person transaction to do so without the challenge of having to park at the City Hall campus.  You must always bring your most recent tax statement with you to the bank branch.  You will receive a receipt at the time of payment.  Please do not attempt to pay Norwalk property taxes at out of town bank branches.
