The second installment of tax on the 2022 Grand List was due January 1, 2024. The last day to pay the January 1, 2024 installment without penalty is February 1, 2024 (US Postmark). Payments not bearing a US Postmark must be received by 4:30pm on February 1, 2024 to avoid interest, per CT Statute 12-146. The tax office is accepting payments in person, by mail, and through the Tax Payment Drop Box (located on the exterior wall of the Tax Collector’s Office). M&T Bank offers in-branch tax payment processing during the month of January for current tax bills. The original tax bill must be provided at time of processing. Tax bills are also viewable and payable online at www.madisonct.org/taxpayments.
The Town has contracted with Vision Government Solutions, Inc. to complete the town-wide revaluation of all real property in the Town of Madison effective for the October 1, 2023 Grand List. The Informal Hearings were completed December 28, 2023. Informal Hearing Assessment Notices will be mailed out by the end of January to those property owners who had an informal hearing with Vision.
If you still wish to appeal your assessment, you must file a written appeal to the Madison Board of Assessment Appeals between February 1, 2024 through February 20, 2024. The forms will be available by the end of January online at https://www.madisonct.org/assessment-appeals and in the Assessor’s Office.
Individuals who have completed and filed a timely Petition form will be granted a hearing before the Board of Assessment Appeals. If an agent represents you, a Notarized Agent Form must be on file with your petition or brought to your hearing. This is the time to present any and all evidence supporting your estimate of Fair Market Value.
I want to wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2024!
