Due to the growing concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus the Assessor’s Office is closed. Governor Lamont’s Executive Order No. 75 has suspended the reapplication requirement for the homeowner’s tax credit. Those already on the homeowners’ program will automatically receive the same credit they got last year. New applicants need to provide proof of income by May 15, 2020 in order to receive the benefit. Please call the Assessor’s office to make arrangement.
