MOTOR VEHICLE BILLS 2016
As most of you know, the Department of Motor Vehicles encountered problems while converting its computer system earlier this year. These problems have caused problems with the mailing addresses and resident addresses of some 50,000 vehicles throughout the state. These problems may cause some vehicles to be billed from towns in which the owner does not reside.
If you received a tax bill from a town in which you do not reside, please contact the assessor of that town to request a transfer to Thomaston. If you do not receive a bill from any town by July 15, 2016 please contact the Thomaston Assessors’ Office at 860-283-0305 so that we can try to resolve this issue.
We would appreciate your patience and cooperation in trying to make the best of a bad situation. There is more information available on The DMVs’ website, www.ct.gov/dmv.
