Shelton Assessor’s Office mails tax declarations to businesses

The Shelton Assessor’s Office has mailed business personal property declarations for the Oct. 1, 2014 Grand List to all known businesses or commercial and industrial operations in the city.

In accordance with Connecticut statutes, all owners and lessees of tangible personal utilized for business purposes are to file a list of such property annually with the city assessor. All forms are to be filled out and returned on or before Monday, Nov. 3.

When the forms are not filed within the time limit, a 25% penalty is applied against the assessed value. Failure to file the forms also constitutes a 25% penalty based on the best information available.

If one is operating a business or profession in the city and has not received the mailing, they should contact the Assessor’s Office for the declaration. Failure to receive a form does not excuse a taxpayer from this obligation.

For information call the assessor at 203-924-1555, ext. 1352.
