Tax Collection

Tax bills are mailed ONLY once every August for the tax year.  One-half payment is due in October, and the remaining one-half payment is due in April.  If you purchase a property after the tax bills are mailed, you will not receive a new bill in your name until the following tax year mailing.  Your attorney should have made you aware of this and all outstanding taxes due are your responsibility.  Contact the Town Clerk's office if you need a copy of the bill at (802) 446-2336.

The Town of Wallingford will charge a $25 fee for all checks returned for any reason.

Dog Licensing Information

Dog licensing is an annual event. Dogs more than six months of age may be licensed any time after January 1st of a calendar year, but must be licensed no later than April 1st of the same year in order to avoid the additional fee assessment. If a dog reaches 6 months of age after April 1st, the owner must apply for a license within 30 days; the fee is reduced by half after October 1st.

All dogs must have a current rabies vaccination. All dogs over three months of age shall be vaccinated against rabies.  The initial vaccination shall be valid for 12 months.  Within 9 to 12 months of the initial vaccination, the animal must receive a booster vaccination.  All subsequent vaccinations following the initial vaccination shall be valid for 36 months.

Dog Licensing Fees:

Type of Dog Fee

     After 4/1

The 20-hole punch card is $20; the 50-hole punch card is $50.
