Tax Collector - Sewer Assessment and Usage Fee Due Dates

The Wolcott Tax Office is responsible for collecting Sewer Assessment and Sewer Usage fees. 

Sewer Assessment fees are assessed only to those taxpayers that access to sewer lines. Individual bills are sent at different times of the year (depending on which phase they are in) to those who have outstanding Sewer Assessment bills. Any questions regarding the Sewer Assessment bills should be addressed to the Tax Collector’s Office. 

Sewer Usage fees are billed only to those property owners who are hooked up to the Sewer lines. The Wolcott Tax Office collects these fees and any questions regarding payments should be forward to the Tax Collector’s Office. The Sewer Usage bills are due and payable on July 1st of each year with a grace period through August 1st. 

All Sewer Usage bills paid or postmarked after August 1st are subject to interest at the rate of 1½% per month with a minimum interest charge of $2.00. If paid late, the interest accrued is retroactive from the date due, which is July 1st. For example, if the Sewer Usage bill is paid on August 5th the interest would be 3% of the bill (1½% for July and 1½% for August). 

Sewer hook-up fees are billed and collected at the Sewer and Water Department. Any questions regarding hook-up fees should be directed to the Sewer and Water Department at (203) 879-8141.
