Pay in Person

Tax Collector's Office

When paying in person, please bring your bill or statement with you to the Tax Collector's Office:
City Hall
125 East Ave. Room 105 (first floor)
Norwalk, CT 06851
Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.   We  do not close for lunch. 


In cases of inclement weather, please call ahead. If City Hall is open, we are expected to be open, but in extreme weather, please call ahead to be sure.   
Paying at Banks during the collection period:   Taxpayers may pay their property tax bills at certain Norwalk bank branch offices.  You do not have to be a customer of the bank in order to pay there, and there is no charge for this service.   View more information and a list of participating banks.   This option provides convenience and  flexibility - taxpayers who wish to have an in-person transaction may do so without the challenge of having to park at City Hall.  You will be able to make use of this service again in June 2019, when bills for the July 1, 2019 installment have been mailed.
