In an effort to help taxpayers, the Borough of Naugatuck will be breaking motor vehicle tax bills into two installments.
This is for motor vehicles in the 2013 Grand List over $300, according to Burgess Laurie Taf-Jackson.
"With the increase in mill rate due to the decrease in real estate values, motor vehicle taxes have increased significantly," Taf-Jackson said. On average, motor vehicle taxes went up about 22 percent.
The first installment will be due July 1, 2014, and the second installment will be due Jan. 1, 2015.
"Working with the Controller, Bob Butler, and the Tax Collector, Jim Goggin, we determined that splitting the motor vehicle tax bills into two parts, while not reducing the total cost, will help taxpayers to pay tax bills," Taf-Jackson said.
