It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Okay, maybe not… but according to the Town of North Branford's website, "The tax bills are here, the tax bills are here!"

Taxes are due to be in the mail or paid in person to the by 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012.

North Branford Tax Collector
P.O. Box 349
North Branford, CT 06471
Late payments will result in an interest charge of 1.5 percent per month from the July 1, 2012 due date. The minimum interest charge is $2. The town encourages residents who are paying late to call the Tax Collector's Office at 203-484-6011 to find out the correct amount due.
"When in doubt, just call," said Ken Delfino, North Branford's Tax Collector. "It makes it easier for everyone."
There will be no mailing for the second installment of the real estate and personal property tax bills. Both payment coupons were included in the bill mailed in June.
