The New Year's celebration for 2013 has come and gone, which means so has Jan. 1: the date municipal taxes are due.
And time is running out to make that payment for the second installment for all real estate, personal property and supplemental motor vehicle taxes on the Grand List of Oct. 1, 2011 — before accounts are considered delinquent.
On each tax bill that becomes delinquent, a minimum interest charge of $2 will be collected.
All delinquent motor vehicle taxes requiring a release for motor vehicle registration should be paid by cash, certified check or money order to avoid delay caused by use of checks.
Making Payment by Feb. 1
Tax payments must be in the mail or paid in person at the North Haven Tax Collector's Office by Feb. 1.
Bills not paid by that time will be marked as past due.
Debit and credit cards are not accepted for payment at the tax collector's window at North Haven Town Hall.
Online Tax Payments
The office, however, does accept online payments through the town's website.
Residents can pay via debit card, credit card, as well as their bank accounts through the online system
The taxpayer is responsible for all fees associated with online payments.
