[ARCHIVED] Mayor Issues Executive Order to Extend Tax Payment Deadlines and Penalties

Due to the unprecedented Public Health Emergency regarding the 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19), on Tuesday, April 7th Mayor Gary Christenson issued an Executive Order on the collection of taxes, interest, penalties and fees regarding payments due to the City of Malden.

On April 3rd Governor Baker signed a bill into law permitting Chief Executive Officers of cities and towns the ability to extend statutory deadlines for the collection of taxes and calculation of interest, penalties and fees. Mayor Christenson immediately implemented the following actions in an effort to assist residents and businesses of the City:

  1. The date for tax payments, real estate and personal property taxes has been extended to June 1, 2020.
  2. The date for calculation of interest on unpaid real estate and personal property tax balances has been extended to June 1, 2020. This means that interest will not begin to calculate on outstanding and unpaid balances until June 1, 2020.
  3. The date to apply, for applicants who are eligible to apply, for statutory exemptions for certain property taxes shall be extended to June 1, 2020.
  4. For any payment of excise, tax, betterment assessment, water/sewer charges or other charge added to a tax bill, the payment of interest and other penalty due to late payment shall be waived on any payment with a due date on or after March 10, 2020, which payment was made after the respective due date, but is received by the City Treasurer before June 30, 2020.
