FRIENDLY REMINDER:  JULY TAXES ARE DUE ANYTIME DURING JULY.   Please do not wait till the last day, in case there is a bad thunderstorm or

power outage, which is certainly possible in January.  Tax office hours during January are Mon, Tues, Thurs from 9-12 noon and 1-4pm and on Wed we are in the office most weeks just 9-12 noon.    We will try to be in the office on Friday, January 26th, from 9-12 noon, at which time the town hall

closes.  Thanks and have a happy summer!   Madaline Meyer, Tax Collector Kristie Valentino, Tax Clerk

Title Searchers or lawyers should contact the Tax Collector or Tax Clerk by email or phone if printouts are needed, especially on voting days, when our offices must be closed. When offices are closed to the public during voting days, the staff could be available by email, fax or phone.

The Chester tax office does NOT accept credit or debit cards.   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!
