On April 28, 2020, pursuant to Chapter 53 of the Acts of 2020, the Board of Selectmen voted to adopt local options to extend due dates for real and personal property tax payments, applications for exemptions, and a waiver of interest on certain municipal tax and excise bills paid by June 30, 2020.
Specifically, the Board voted to:
1. extend the due date for payment of the 4th quarter FY2020 property tax bills from May 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020;
2. extend the deadline for filing property tax exemption and deferral applications from April 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020; and
3. waive the interest and other penalties for late payments on motor vehicle excise and property tax bills with due dates after March 10, 2020 where payment is made late, but by June 30, 2020. This waiver of interest and penalties does not apply to bills with due dates before March 10, 2020 or if the bill is not paid by June 30. Bills not paid by June 30 will begin accruing interest on July 1, 2020.
