JULY TAXES ARE DUE. The Town of Newington has extended the normal grace-period from 30 days to 90 days due to the Coroa-19 Virus for Real Estate, Personal Property, and Motor Vehicle taxes for taxpayers with the last day to pay without penalty being October 1, 2020. On October 2nd, interest will be restored at the regular rate of 1.5% per month and is calculated based on the July 1st due date.
LANDLORDS ARE AN EXCEPTION per Governor Lamont’s Executive Order 7-S, Section 6 that any taxpayer who rents or leases property to tenants or lessees had to have completed an application with the Tax Collector by June 30th to be able to qualify for the deferment. Otherwise the regular 30-day grace-period applies which is August 3rd. Banks, Escrow Companies and Mortgage Holders also have until August 3rd to pay without penalty.
