Important Information Regarding Your Tax Bill
Under “An Act to Address Challenges Faced by Municipalities and State Authorities Resulting From COVID-19,” Chapter 53 of the Acts of 2020, The Town of Holland has adopted local options to extend due dates for applications for exemptions and a waiver of interest on certain municipal tax and other bills paid by June 30, 2020, See below.
The due date for applications for property tax exemptions has been extended to June 1, 2020. June 1, 2020 is the new due date for exemption applications even if the due date for applications on your previously mailed tax bill is April 1, 2020.
This extension applies to applications listed in the third paragraph of G.L. c 59 sec 59, including applications under clauses 17D, (Seniors, surviving spouses, minor children of deceased parent); 18 (financial hardship-activated military, age and infirmity); 22, 22A, 22B, 22C,22D,22E, 22F,22H (veterans, surviving spouses and surviving parents) 37A (blind persons); 41C (seniors).
The Town of Holland Board of Selectmen has also voted to keep the May dues dates, but to waive interest and other penalty for late payment of any excise, tax or betterment assessment or apportionment thereof or other charge added to a tax or any payments with a due date on or after March 10, 2020 where payment is made late but before June 30, 2020.
This applies to late payments of bills that have a due date of March10, 2020 or after, when such bills are paid late but paid on or before June 30. This waiver of interest does not apply to bills with due dates before March10, 2020 or if the bill is not paid by June 30.
