Town of Ellington COVID-19 Property Tax Relief Program
In response to the Governor’s Executive Order which provides relief from certain municipal tax deadlines, the Board of Selectmen voted on April 13, 2020 to approve effective immediately a deferment of ninety (90) days of any taxes on real estate, personal property or motor vehicles, or municipal sewer use or sewer assessments from the time that it became due and payable.
Tax Deferment Program
The grace periods have been extended as follows:
Landlord Eligibility Under the Deferment Program
In order for landlords (or any taxpayer that rents or leases property to tenants or lessees) to be eligible for the Deferment Program, they must provide the Tax Collector with documentation that either the parcel will suffer significant income decline, or that commensurate forbearance has been offered to their tenants. Residential landlords will need to mail or email the Tax Collector confirming that they are in compliance with Executive Order 7X or some other evidence of eligibility.
Commensurate forbearance means (1) a deferral of 25% of rent for ninety (90) days after its due date; (2) a deferral of one month’s rent to be paid over the ninety (90) day period; or (3) forbearance substantially similar to (1) or (2) as determined by the tax collector. The landlord must provide documentation evidencing proof that the tenants have received forbearance or that the landlord has actively offered forbearance to the tenants or lessees.
