The Town of Ridgefield will provide a Tax Deferral Program under Governor Lamont’s Executive Order issued in December. This program aims to assist eligible Ridgefield taxpayers suffering financial hardship due to COVID-19. The Tax Deferral Program is available by application, with documentation submitted to the Tax Collector by no later than February 1st, for the January tax quarter. The program is an extended grace period on tax payments for the January 2021 tax bills so that payments made anytime within three months from each bill’s due date will not incur interest charges or penalties. If accepted into the program, the new last day to pay without penalty is April 1, 2021. This only applies to any January installment. The Low-Interest Program is available to everyone, not just those who qualify.
