The Town has received many inquiries from residents regarding the prepayment of taxes. I would like to clarify a few things to help residents prepare and plan accordingly.
According to State Statute, the Town only has the authority to accept prepayment, by December 31st, of tax payments due January 1, 2018 and April 1, 2018. State Statute does not allow you to prepay taxes due July 1, 2018 or later, this December.
Those wishing to prepay their January and April taxes can do so:
- In Person – At the Tax Collector’s Office by 4:30 pm, Friday, December 29th (hours are M-F 8:30-4:30)
- By Mail – Must be postmarked by Sunday, December 31st
- Online – Must be submitted by midnight, Sunday, December 31st (convenience fee applies)
You can go to www.fairfieldct.org/taxpayment to view your tax bill and/or pay your taxes online.
Please note that this is not tax advice and the Town takes no responsibility regarding the IRS treatment of these payments. The Town strongly recommends that you consult with your personal tax advisor before making a decision to prepay.
For more detailed information please read the press release from our Tax Collector.
