Groton offers both tax payment deferment, low interest rate programs
27 Apr 2020
The Town Council voted this week to participate in a 90-day deferment program for tax payments and municipal water, sewer and electric charges, as well as a low interest rate program for those not eligible for the deferment program.
Under an executive order issued by Gov. Ned Lamont, municipalities have to choose at least one of two programs that provide “support to eligible taxpayers, businesses, nonprofits and residents who have been economically affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.” The deferment program extends the deadline for tax payments and municipal, electric, water and sewer bills; the low interest rate program reduces interest rates to 3% on delinquent bills.
