Do not pay online if you require a DMV clearance(renewal, new car purchase, plate transfer etc) To receive an immediate clearance, you must pay in the tax office with cash, credit or debit card, money order, or certified bank check.

Paying by Credit Card/Debit Card:
The transaction fee is charged and collected directly by the credit card merchant. The Town of Windsor Locks does not profit from the feescharged at the time of the transaction. Per Connecticut General Statute 12-141a, municipalities may require residents to pay the fees associated with credit or debit card transactions The most fair and equitable option is for the individual taxpayer to pay the fees associated with their transaction. As a reminder, the town offers an EFT/ACH online payment option costing only $1.25 per completed transaction. We understand that these fees are frustrating but are beyond the control of our municipality
Payments will be considered on time as long as the payment has been completed on the final due date. After the payment has been completed, you will receive a payment confirmation containing the list number, amount paid, and a confirmation number - print out this page and save it for your records.
