Bethel Tax Deferral
On Tuesday night, the Board of Selectmen unanimously approved a tax deferral program to help residents and businesses who have suffered income losses as a result of the pandemic shutdown. The program is open to all Bethel residents, businesses and non-profits.
The program offers a 90-day deferral on all real and personal property taxes, utility charges and assessments between March 10th and July 1st, 2020. This will apply to April tax bills that are currently pending, as well as tax bills to be issued in June. For those that qualify, the new deadline date for April taxes will be July 1st; for June taxes, the deadline date will be October 1st.
To qualify for the program residents and businesses must sign a form attesting to a loss of income during this period of 20% or more.
Program details and the application form can be found on the town website located at: www.bethel-ct.gov/content/117/439/21044.aspx
