Emergency Support – Final Tax Installment Deferral Application

Program Details

The City of Cambridge has introduced the Emergency Support – Final Installment Property Tax Deferral program to provide additional relief to residents and businesses that are experiencing financial hardship as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is intended to give residents and businesses extra time to pay their final tax bills if needed by extending final due dates by 60 days. The program is available to eligible property owners in all property classes.

The deadline for submitting an application to this program is July 31, 2020.  All applications must be submitted by the property owner and they will be notified by mail if their application is approved. If you are applying to this program and currently pay your property taxes through a pre-authorized payment plan, you will be removed from the plan once your application is approved. You will be required to submit a new pre-authorized payment plan application form in November for the 2021 tax year if you wish to re-enroll. If your mortgage company pays your property taxes, you are responsible for contacting your financial institution directly to advise them to delay your payments if your application is approved. You are required to provide a valid email address on your application.
