IMPORTANT: Homeowners' Elderly/Disabled Circuit Breaker Tax Relief Program

Reapplication Filing Requirement for the Homeowners' Elderly/Disabled Circuit Breaker Tax Relief Program has been suspended for any taxpayers granted the benefit when applied during the 2017 Grand List year. Such taxpayers will automatically maintain the benefit for the 2019 Grand List  year and biennial cycle, needing to reapply for the 2021 Grand List (application period Feb 1 – May 15 2022). Per OPM, if a homeowner has already submitted an application for the 2019 Grand List and is found to be over income or otherwise not eligible, then such homeowner shall not be eligible for the benefit and may reapply the following enrollment period.


If you are a new applicant or your income limits have drastically changed, please contact our office via email at assessor@wlocks.com or phone 860-627-1448.
