Tax Collector - Water Assessment and Usage Fee Due Dates
The Wolcott Tax Office is responsible for collecting Water Assessment and Water Usage fees.
Water Assessment fees are assessed only to those taxpayers that have access to water lines. Individual bills are sent out annually at different times of the year (depending on which phase they are in) to those who have outstanding Water Assessment bills and are subject to interest at 1 1/2% per month with a minimum interest charge of $5.00. If paid late, the delinquent interest accrued is retroactive from the date due. Any questions regarding the Water Assessment bills should be addressed to the Tax Collector’s Office.
Water Usage fees are billed only to those property owners who are hooked up to the water lines. The Wolcott Tax Office collects these fees and any questions regarding payments should be forward to the Tax Collector’s Office. The Water Usage bills are due and payable every quarter and are subject to interest at the rate of 1 1/2% per month with a minimum interest charge of $2.00. If paid late, the interest accrued is retroactive from the date due. For example, if the Water Usage bill is paid or postmarked one or more days after the grace period, the interest would be 3% of the bill, or $2.00, whichever is greater.If usage fees are not paid by the due date a $24.00 lien fee will be applied to each quarter per CT State Statute.
Water hook-up fees are billed and collected at the Sewer and Water Department. Any questions regarding hook-up fees should be directed to the Sewer and Water Department at (203) 879-8141.
