All real estate and business personal property tax bills (over $100) are due in two installments; first installment due July 1 on or before August 1 and considered late with interest fees if received or postmarked after that date and second installment due January 1 on or before February 1 and considered late with interest fees if received or postmarked after that date. All motor vehicle tax bills are due July 1 and are due in one installment. These bills can be paid during the entire month of July without any interest penalty and would only be considered late with interest fees added if received or postmarked after August 1. Supplemental motor vehicle tax bills are mailed in late December and are also due in one installment on January 1. These bills can be paid during the entire month of January without any interest penalty and would only be considered late with interest fees added if received or postmarked after February 1.
The most convenient and efficient way to pay is by check sent via the USPS. Taxpayers can also pay by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, and Discover) online from home at www.bristolct.gov. There is an additional fee of 2.95% if paying by credit card. Our office does accept cash payment. We do have restrictions of what we will accept for payment if your tax bill is delinquent six months or older.
Tax payments must be received or postmarked by August 1 (first installment) or February 1 (second installment) to avoid the accrual of interest. If a payment is received and is postmarked after August 1, it will immediately be subject to 3% interest (1.5% for July and 1.5% for August). Interest will then continue to accrue at a rate of 1.5% per month (18% annually) and you will be billed for the balance due. The same would be true with the second payment of real estate and personal property taxes if received or postmarked after February 1. The interest will be added back to January and 3% interest will be added immediately on February 2.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
