Brookfield officials are reminding residents that taxes must be paid by August 3rd in order to avoid a penalty. Residents can mail in their tax payments, drop them off in the box in front of Brookfield Town Hall or go online to pay. There is an additional charge imposed by the card processor to pay online. Anyone requesting a mailed receipt should include a self-addressed stamped envelope and Brookfield town employees will mail that receipt. Residents can also check online to confirm town hall has received and recorded the tax payment.
