Acceptable Forms of Payment

If you are paying a real estate or business personal property tax bill, the Collector’s office will accept cash and check only at the Town Hall window and checks through the mail.  Our location and mailing address is:

Tax Collector
Town of Putnam
126 Church St
Putnam, CT 06260

If you are paying a motor vehicle tax bill, and are in need of a Connecticut Motor Vehicle release to register a car, an immediate release can be received if paying in cash, money order or certified bank check.  If a taxpayer pays the Collector’s office in a personal check, a release will be available from the office in 10 business days.

Credit card, debit cards, as well as checking and saving transfers may be used online, using the link above. Be aware that you are paying Invoice Cloud, a third party, and your payment may not be received and recorded by us for as much as 7 days after payment is made by you.  If you pay a motor vehicle bill online and wish to receive a release for the Connecticut DMV, the Tax Collector’ s office may not issue the release until the payment has been recieved by the Town of Putnam by Invoice Cloud.
