Motor vehicle property tax bills for registered vehicles are sent from your local tax assessor. Tax bills are due in January and July.

If you change your address, there is a chance that you may not receive your motor vehicle tax bill in a timely manner, even if you file a forwarding order with the post office. Ex: If you change your address after or on October 1st (of any year), your motor vehicle tax bill will be from your past (address) tax assessor. Changes made prior to October 1 (of any year) will be from your current tax assessor.

Be sure to check with the Tax Collector in your previous town and new town if you did not receive a bill. You are liable to pay your motor vehicle tax, even if you do not receive the tax bill. Failure to pay the motor vehicle tax bill may result in the denial of your registration privileges.

If you moved out-of-state, you must cancel your registration to ensure your vehicle will no longer be assessed motor vehicle taxes in Connecticut. See information on how to cancel a registration.
