At last night's Wilton Board of Selectmen meeting, the Senior and Disabled Tax Relief program filing deadlines were extended from May 15th to July 31st. This change allows the deadline to better align with the change in the IRS filing deadline. Relief is available to qualified taxpayers with income, as defined, of $85,700 or less. Wilton residents can obtain a credit or defer their taxes or both. All qualified taxpayers receive a minimum credit of $250. The maximum credit is $4,900. The application is available on the town website. Please email the Assessor’s department with questions. The State did not change the deadline to file for the State’s senior and disabled tax credit program. The State no longer provides funding for their program. Instead, each year since 2018, when the State announced no funding, the Board of Selectmen has provided funding for the allowable tax credits.
