The Town is offering all qualified taxpayers the opportunity to delay, for three months, payments of taxes on real estate, supplemental motor vehicle taxes, and sewer fees due January 1, 2021. This is done in recognition of the ongoing financial hardships brought on the by global COVID-19 pandemic. The extension now allows for the deferment to April 1, 2021.
The tax deferment program is open to all qualified residents, non-profits and businesses, including landlords. To qualify, non-landlord taxpayers must attest that their income has decreased by at least 20% during the emergency period due to layoffs, furloughs, business closures or other factor related to COVID-19. Landlord taxpayers must attest that their income has decreased by 30%. For those who pay their taxes in escrow, financial institutions will continue to remit property taxes to the Town to meet the original January 1st date.
Program instructions and forms are posted on the Tax Collector’s page of the Town website at www.newcanaan.info
