Chester taxpayers are now able to pay their real estate, personal property, motor vehicle, and supplemental motor vehicles taxes online with a credit card, debit card or e-check. Payments made online will be updated within three business days.

This service is provided through Point and Pay. Point and Pay adds a 2.50% ($2.00 minimum) convenience fee for processing your payment on a credit card. The fee for using a debit card is $3.95, and the fee for an e-check is $1.00. These fees are disclosed before you complete the transaction. Taxpayers will have the opportunity to review the transaction and back out of the transaction if necessary before it is processed. Click here to pay with credit card.



Please drop off tax payment INSIDE mailbox in front lobby marked Town Hall. Please enclose your payment in an envelope. Do NOT leave cash.

Friendly Reminder:   Real Estate taxes are due in July and January

                                          Personal Property taxes are due in July and January if the total bill is over $100, otherwise bills less than

                                          $100 are due in full in July.

                                          Motor Vehicle bills are due in July in full but Motor Vehicle Supplemental bills are due in January in full.

                                          Please do not wait till the last moment, because bad storms close down Town Hall, or power goes out

                                          and computers won’t  work, or emergencies could occur shutting down the Tax Office.   Only two people

                                          can clear a delinquent MV bill with the DMV and if we each are out due to an emergency, you will not get

                                          cleared with DMV till one of us is back in the office.   Paying MV bills on time is the best solution to this

                                          possibility not causing you any delay or problem registering a MV.    

                                                                                                             Madaline Meyer, Tax Collector

Payment for delinquent MV bills that need DMV clearance must be paid by cash, postal money order, bank check or thru your own bank, setting the Tax Collector as an account that needs to be paid.   Your own bank payment works well but could take a week for us to receive and process.   Any questions, email or call during business hours at 860 526 0013 x 513 for amount and information!
