Per Gov. Lamont’s Executive Order 7S the Town of Burlington has elected to participate in the Deferment Program to all taxpayers, business, nonprofits and residents as well as eligible landlords. Any tax that becomes due between April 1, 2020 and July 1, 2020 (including July 1st) are entitled to defer their payment deadline until 90 days from the tax due date. The plan covers any real estate, motor vehicle or personal property tax, sewer use charges and sewer assessment.
For example, Real Estate, Motor Vehicle & Personal Property installments due July 1, 2020, instead of the last day to pay being August 3, 2020, the last day to pay will instead be October 1, 2020 (90 days from July 1). If payment is not made until October 2, 2020 the interest will be calculated back to July 1, 2020 at 1 ½% per month or 6%.
This does not apply to escrow taxes. Escrow agents are still expected to remit tax payments on behalf of their customers according to the regular timetable.
This program does not include taxes that are already past due.
