Stonington assessor explains elderly homeowner tax relief, filing date for landlords

Stonington -- Assessor Marsha Standish said Monday that under Gov. Ned Lamont’s Executive Order 7s, applicants for elderly homeowner tax relief who had a 2017 grand list application approved will be granted the benefit without having to reapply. Lamont’s order supersedes any prior correspondence from the Department of Assessment to reapply.

New filers must still abide by the May 15 filing deadline. Any new filer wishing to apply after May 15 must request an extension of time to apply from the state Office of Policy and Management on or before August 15. Requests for extension for COVID-19 related reasons will be approved.

For income producing property owners, Lamont’s executive order 7S extends the deadline for taxpayers to file their Income and Expense statements under state statute 12-63c to Aug. 15. Forms will be available in May.

Anyone with questions should contact the Department of Assessment at (860) 535-5098 or
