How can I pay my taxes during COVID-19?

  • Payment methods have not changed.  You have 3 options:
  1. Mail your payment to:  389 Route 2, Preston, CT 06365  Attn: Tax Collector
  2. Online:    (Fees apply, 2.95% for credit/debit card or $0.95 for electronic checks)
  3. IN PERSON: YES, you can still make payments in person.  When you arrive at Town Hall please ring the doorbell located on the front door.  We will come outside to meet you and return your receipt to you immediately.  If you are uncomfortable meeting us at the front door you can place your payment in the newly installed blue drop box.  If you are trying to avoid contact with others, please remain in your car and call 860-887-5581 Ext. 2 and we will come to you.
