Greenwich Tax Collector Howard Richman said close to 20,000 bills were mailed to residents on December 20, 2018.
The bills were half real estate and half supplemental motor vehicle taxes for cars registered between October 2, 2017 and July 31, 2018.
“Our onlines picked up in the last couple of cycles,” Richman said, referring to people who paid their Greenwich taxes online. “We are hoping more people will pay online.”
Richman said residents are always welcome to pay their taxes in person at Greenwich Town Hall or to send a check in the mail.
“There are some fees associated with paying online,” Richman cautioned. “Taxes are due January 1, 2019 and payable without interest on or before February 1, 2019. “If a bill is mailed in, the US Postal Service post mark is the determining factor as to whether it arrived on time.”

“I’ve been doing this job for a year and I know how the office works,” said Richman, a Democrat, who defeated incumbent tax collector Tod Laudonia in November 2017.
“We’ve made some changes for efficiency,” Richman said. “I’m going to tax certification school, which is a program of four courses over two years.”
