Paying at Banks during the collection period: Taxpayers may pay their property tax bills at participating 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. Please bring your most current tax statement with you to the bank branch. This service will again be available when the new tax bills are issued in June, 2020.
