City of Chicopee
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, Chicopee has adopted local options to extend due dates for real and personal property tax payments and a waiver of interest on certain municipal tax and other bills paid by June 30, 2020. See below.
1. The due date of your real and personal property tax bill has been extended to June 1, 2020. June 1, 2020, is the new due date even if the due date for payment on your enclosed or previously mailed tax bill is April 1, 2020, or May 1, 2020.
2. The city of Chicopee has also voted to waive interest and other penalties for late payment of any excise, tax, betterment assessment or the apportionment thereof, water rate or annual sewer use or other charge added to a tax for 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 March 10, 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 March 10, 2020, or if the bill is not paid by June 30.
[City/town should add information on how/where to make tax payments, for example, by mail, through an online payment system or dropping payment into a lockbox (with the location). The city/town should also provide a telephone number where questions to local officials can be directed and the address of any relevant website information.]
