Tax Payment Options

1. Dropbox outside of building:

For the convenience of Berlin taxpayers, a dropbox has been installed outside of door 3 at Town Hall. This box is for taxpayers choosing to drop off their payments at Town Hall. It will be checked throughout the day, and at the end of each day to ensure payments are being processed in a timely manner.

PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF A CASH PAYMENT IN THE DROPBOX. This box is intended for payments made with checks only.

2. Mail in your payment

Please send only checks when you choose to mail in your tax payments. Include your payment stub to ensure that staff knows which accounts the payment should be applied to.

Payments can be mailed to:

Room 108
240 Kensington Road
Berlin, CT 06037


PO Box 150410
Hartford, CT 06115-0410

*Please note that this PO Box is a lockbox through the Town's bank; they accept payments during collection months to reduce the time it takes to process and post checks.

Should you like a receipt for your payment, enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope with your payment.

NOTE: Please ensure that the legal line and numeric line on your check match. A $20 return check fee will be charged to your account, should the bank not accept a check for insufficient funds, incorrect information, amounts not matching, etc.

Town of Berlin - Revenue Collector's Cash Acceptance Policy

The Town of Berlin Revenue Collector follows the cash acceptance procedures outlined below. The purpose of this policy is to ensure accurate and secure acceptance of cash payments, minimize the risk of inadvertently accepting counterfeit notes, avoid loss, and safeguard the integrity of financial transactions. 

All cash received at the Revenue Collector's office is processed and verified using a counterfeit detection device. This machine accurately counts the cash and identifies notes that cannot be validated as legal currency. In the event the currency is rejected by the machine, the cash will not be accepted by the Revenue Collector's Office and must be replaced by the payor. The payor has the option to write a check for the difference or exchange the rejected notes with valid legal currency. Anyone who tenders invalid notes shall remain liable to the Town for payment of the underlying obligation. 

All coins of $5.00 must be in rolls.
