Property Tax Payments

- Bills are mailed on July 15th. Quarterly installments are due on February 15th, May 15th, August 15th, and November 15th. If these dates fall on a weekend or holiday, we will accept payment on the next business day.
- Please note that we must receive the payment on or before the due date; we do not accept postmarks.

On May 16th taxes become delinquent with an 8% penalty and are turned over to the Delinquent Tax Collector.
- COVID-19 Notice for Taxes & Utilities: Tax bills were mailed on 8/7/2020. Due to the Vermont State tax filing deadline extension to 7/15/2020, the City did not receive homestead declaration information for many taxpayers until 8/1/20. If we had proceeded as normal, homestead declaration information may not have been included leading to confusion and potential overpayment. Act 102 signed by Governor Scott allowed municipalities to change the due date for property taxes. A delay of the first installment was approved by the Winooski City Council at their meeting on 6/6/20. The deadlines for the 2020-21 tax bill as approved are 9/7/20, 11/15/20, 2/15/21, and 5/15/21.
