CITY OF HARTFORD OFFERS QUARTERLY REAL ESTATE TAX BILLS TO ELIGIBLE SENIOR CITIZENS

(June 15, 2015) City Tax Collector Marc Nelson announced today that the City of Hartford’s Elderly Tax Credit program has been amended for FY 2016 to allow eligible senior citizens to pay their annual real estate tax in quarterly installments rather than semi-annual installments. The City Council approved the change earlier this year.

City Councilman Kenneth H. Kennedy, Jr., said, “I have been personally championing this change for many years and I am happy and honored that, with the help of the Administration, the Tax Collector, and our City Assessor, we’ve been able to help our seniors by offering quarterly tax bills – it’s simply the right thing to do.”

“This change will be a great help for Hartford’s senior citizens who meet the income requirements of the Elderly Tax Credit Program. By breaking the annual tax into smaller payments, eligible seniors will be better able to manage their payments, but more than that –the change will result in fewer delinquencies and fewer real estate tax liens being filed each year,” said Nelson.

The City’s Elderly Tax Credit Program is administered by the City Assessor’s office. The annual application period is February 1st through May 15th. For more information contact the City Assessor’s Office at (860)757-9640.
