All property owners liable to pay a Tax to the Town of Lyme on the Grand List of October 1, 2019, are hereby notified that the tax becomes due and payable July 1, 2020. Failure to make payment on or before August 3, 2020, will subject the tax to an interest charge.  

In accordance with Executive Order 7S and Lyme’s adoption of the Low Interest program, the interest will accrue at the rate of 3% per annum, .25% per month or fraction thereof from the due date for a period of 3 months, ending October 1, 2020. On October 2, 2020, the interest will then revert to the 18% per annum, 1½ % per month on balances due and will be charged back to the original due date of July 1, 2020 with a minimum interest charge of $2.00 per bill. FAILURE TO RECEIVE A TAX BILL DOES NOT INVALIDATE THE TAX or waive the interest due, should the bill become delinquent.

Payments will be accepted at Town Hall, 480 Hamburg Road or may be mailed to: Tax Collector, 480 Hamburg Road, Lyme, CT 06371. The Tax Collector’s office will be open weekdays in July from 9:00 am- 4:00 pm except July 3, 2020. We strongly encourage payment by mail. Must be postmarked by August 3, 2020 to be considered on time.
