“An extension of time to file returns with a September 1 due date has been approved by Commissioner Peterson.
Due to the statewide damage and disruption caused by Hurricane Irene, it will be impossible for many individuals to meet the September 1 filing deadlines for four programs administered by the Department. Therefore the following documents will be accepted if they are received by the Department by September 30, 2011:
- Property Tax Adjustment Claim (HS-145 with HI-144);
- Homestead Declaration (HS-131); and
- Renter Rebate Claim (PR-141 with HI-144.
Current Use Application September 1 due date is also extended and applications with a September 30, 2011 postmark date will be accepted.
Property Tax Adjustment Claims processed in time for the September 15 transmission to towns will have the credit applied to the property tax bill. All other Property Tax Adjustment Claims received by September 30, 2011 will have the adjustment mailed directly to the homeowner.”
