TAX DEFERMENT PROGRAM FOR ELIGIBLE RESIDENTS – APPLICATION DUE BY JULY 1, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a tax deferment program has been put in place for the upcoming July tax bills. This program, will allow eligible taxpayers, businesses, nonprofits and residents who have suffered a significant adverse economic impact by COVID-19 and those that are providing relief to others significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to defer up to ninety days the payment of real property, personal property and motor vehicles taxes. Normally, tax bills mailed in June each year are due by July 1st, with an interest-free grace period to the first business day in August. This program will extend the grace period up to 90-days.

Although tax bills due July 1, 2020, will still be mailed out in June 2020 as usual, an eligible taxpayer may pay the first installment any time between July 1, 2020 and October 1, 2020, without any interest penalty or late fee. Please note though that tax bills must either be received or have a valid, United States Postal Service Postmark dated October 1, 2020, or earlier to be considered on-time.    

If tax bills are not paid by October 1, 2020, interest will be applied at the statutorily required interest rate of 1.5% per month, retroactive to July 1, 2020.  The City of Hartford cannot waive or reduce interest once it is applied to tax bills and not receiving the tax bill does not invalidate the tax bill or the interest, therefore any resident or taxpayer who does not receive a tax bill should check for their tax bill online or email the Tax Office to request tax information.
