Governor Issues Executive Order 9R, Lowering Interest Rates for Tax Bills

Submitted by Kristin BattistoniĀ 

(January 14, 2021) The Governor has once again issued an Executive Order to help residents affected by loss of income or hardship due the Covid 19 pandemic. Executive Order 9R allows the Town of Haddam to offer an interest rate of .25% instead of the statutorily rate of 1.5% a month for bills that become due on January 1, 2021 until March 31, 2021.

A statutory grace period of thirty days has always been applied to new bills. This year you have until February 1, 2021 to make a payment on the second installment of Real Estate, Personal Property and Supplemental Motor Vehicles without any interest. After that time, interest will be calculated back to the original due date of January 1, 2021. After the deadline of March 31, 2021, the interest is calculated back to the original to the due date of January 1, 2021 at an interest rate 1.5% a month.

Payments must be post marked by this date or in the office by the deadline in order to take advantage of this program. Payments can be dropped off in person at the office Monday-Tuesday 8:30-4, Thursday 8:30-6 or Friday 8:30-12. I am currently working from home on Wednesdays. There is a lock box set up outside the Town Office Building by the front door. Payments can be dropped off anytime there. I also have a drop box in my office door that can be used while the Town Office Building is open. If you take advantage of one of these no contact payment methods and would like a receipt please include a self-addressed stamped envelope.

If you have any questions please reach out to me at or 860-345-8531 X 207.
