TRUMBULL — Every Trumbull resident will be eligible for a 90-day grace period to pay property taxes due April 1 and July 1 under a municipal relief plan proposed by First Selectman Vicki Tesoro, who made the announcement in an April 15 message to residents.
The Town Council has scheduled a special meeting April 21 to adopt municipal tax relief as mandated by Gov. Ned Lamont. The executive order, issued April 1, requires communities adopt either a tax deferment program or temporary reduced interest on late tax payments. The programs also can be applied to the entire community or to those who have suffered financial hardship because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
