Tolland County Overview

Tolland County is a county located in the northeastern part of the U.S. state of Connecticut. As of the 2010 census, the population was 152,691.

Tolland County has the same boundaries as the Tolland Judicial District. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 417 square miles, of which 410 square miles is land and 6.8 square miles is water. It is the second-smallest county in Connecticut by land area and smallest by total area. Neighboring counties include two in Massachusetts to the northwest, Hampden and to the northeast, Worcester.

The office is also responsible for delinquent billings, issuing Alias Tax Warrants, filing and releasing liens, initiating tax sales and reporting delinquencies and payments to the Department of Motor Vehicles. The Office of the Collector of Revenue prepares bills and collects taxes for real estate, motor vehicles, and personal property according to the General Statutes of the State of Connecticut (Sec.12-130 et seq.).

As is the case with all eight of Connecticut’s counties, there is no county government and no county seat. As an area, it is only a geographical point of reference. In Connecticut, the cities and towns are responsible for all local governmental activities including fire and rescue, schools, and snow removal; in a few cases, neighboring towns will share certain resources.
