What if I am late in making my payment?

Personal property tax bills must be paid on time or liens are immediately filed with the state of Connecticut. If the July half is late, the second half, normally due in January, is due immediately. Liens are not released until full payment is received. There is a two week wait after the payment date to make sure the check has cleared.
