Tax Abatement Program
Applications for property tax abatements are available to Hebron residents. There is a Town Ordinance that defers property taxes when those taxes exceed 8 percent of total household income from any source.
For example, if the total household income from any source totals $30,000, the property tax liability would be capped at $2,400. The abatement would be for any property taxes that exceeded $2,400. The abatements would apply to the upcoming tax year beginning July 1.
Under the ordinance, taxes that are abated would be repaid when a property is sold or transferred through probate. Abated taxes would accrue at an interest rate which is significantly less than what is charged for delinquent taxes (18 percent). The interest rate is currently 1.5 percent and is reviewed annually by the Board of Selectmen.
Persons who are interested in the program can request an application by calling the Town Manager’s Office. Applications will be mailed upon request. Call (860) 228-5971 for more information. The application deadline is June 1.
