Town of Hardwick Update April 29. 2020
Hardwick Property Tax Due Date of May 10, 2020 remains in effect.
Dear Hardwick Tax Payer,
At the Select Board Meeting on April 16, 2020 the Property Tax due date of May 10, 2020 was carefully reviewed. At that time it was determined to hold to the due date of May 10, due mostly to the fact that the Town of Hardwick will have to pay a substantial school district bill no later than June 1, 2020. On this subject the state is considering amending the law related to property tax payment processing to include extending due dates and potentially waving penalties and interest but nothing finalized as of yet. The Select Board will continue to discuss details associated with property tax payments at its upcoming meeting on May 7. An update will be provided it any substantial changes on the information indicated here.
