Credit Card and e-Check Payments

The City of Middletown has partnered with Point & Pay, LLC, to accept credit card payments online or via telephone at (844) 462-1019.

Look up by bill number or by Unique ID and pay your bill online

With this service, taxpayers can look up and pay bills online for current taxes, delinquent taxes, or sanitation charges.

Convenience Fee

Point and Pay charges taxpayers a convenience fee for processing credit card transactions. The fee for a standard credit card is 2.5% of the total, with a $2.00 minimum fee and is disclosed before you approve the transaction completion.  Taxpayers will have the opportunity to review the transaction and back out of the transaction if necessary before it is processed.

If you are using a Visa Logo Debit card, please select the Debit option which will charge a flat rate of $3.95.

The fee for using an E Check (ACH payment) is $2.00.

Information regarding motor vehicle taxes and DMV clearance:

The Department of Motor Vehicles encourages taxpayers to go online to process transactions in order to avoid waiting in line at the DMV branches.  You can now verify your tax status and other compliance issues with DMV on-line, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If you pay today by credit card through the Point & Pay service portal, either by phone or online, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE IMMEDIATE CLEARANCE FOR DMV.

If you pay through Point & Pay today, the City will update your account with your payment information on the following business day.  You will be cleared to register with DMV THREE BUSINESS DAYS AFTER you make payment through the Point & Pay service.

Effective November 2015, the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles discontinued the use of the ‘paper' vehicle clearance slip, and the tax collector's release stamp on vehicle registrations. The DMV no longer accepts either paper or stamped releases. This change came about through DMV's initiative, not the City's.

The best way to avoid problems with compliance at the DMV is to pay your motor vehicle taxes on time, before they are late.

Note: If a tax clearance for DMV is needed, please DO NOT USE the E-Check option for method of payment. If you choose to use this method the Tax Collector's Office will not clear you for registration for 30 days, unless a copy of cancelled check or mini-statement from the bank is provided to the Tax Collector's Office, showing that the check has cleared your account.
