The Tax Collector is responsible for collecting real estate taxes, motor vehicle taxes, personal property taxes, sewer use fees, sewer assessments and sewer laterals.
The Tax Collector’s goal is to help maintain the fiscal stability of the City of Milford by ensuring timely collection and recording of all revenues through the diligent application of Connecticut State Statutes, regulations and other enforcement aids, while assisting the public in understanding the taxation process and procedures while maintaining an effective and cordial relationship with the general public. The City of Milford cannot override or make any decisions contrary to the Connecticut State Statutes.
Collection of taxes is based off a Grand List of each October 1st as certified by the Assessor’s Office. Tax amounts are determined by the City of Milford budget from a collaborative effort on behalf of the Mayor, Board of Finance and Board of Alderman; then adopted by the Board of Aldermen to set the Mill Rate.
