Gov. Lamont suspends tax deadlines for bills payable Jan. 1
Gov. Ned Lamont’s latest executive order is offering tax relief on property, car and water bills due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If a municipality opts into the deferment program, the order says taxes that become due on Jan. 1, 2021 can be paid as late as April 1 – if the taxpayer can prove “significant economic impact” from the pandemic.
Landlords would have to prove “significant economic decline” and that they offered rent relief to tenants in order to receive the deferment.
The executive order also applies to commercial landlords. It was not yet clear if the governor would extend the ban on evictions, which expires on Dec. 31.
