The annual budget for the Town of Orange FY 2018/ 2019 passed on May 23 thereby setting the 2017 Grand List Mill Rate at 32 mills for Real Estate, Personal Property, and Motor Vehicles.
Please keep in mind that payments will not be accepted or processed until July 2, 2018. The Office of Policy and Management (OPM) has indicated that outside the provision of 12‐163 (Jeopardy) of the Ct. State Statute, tax collectors are NOT authorized to accept early payments.
To ensure immediate and proper posting your installment coupon is necessary. If you want a receipt, bring the entire three-part tax bill. Payments by mail require a self-addressed stamped envelope along with the entire three-part tax bill.
Tax bills may be paid online, on the Town of Orange website; there is a fee associated.
Motor vehicle clearance will take 11 days. For 24 hr. clearance delinquent tax bills must be paid in cash in the office between 8:30 a.m. – 3: 30 p.m.
The 2017 Grand List information will not be available for viewing until July 1.
The Tax Office will close at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 29, so that the 2016 Grand List can be balanced and closed.
We will have no computer access during this time. The 2017 Grand List information will be loaded and we will begin accepting and processing payments on July 2, 2018.
