OLR Bill Analysis

HB 6080

AN ACT CONCERNING CLARIFICATION OF THE PERIOD OF TIME BETWEEN THE REAL ESTATE PROPERTY TAX DUE DATE AND THE LAPSING OF THE SILENT LIEN PROVIDED IN STATUTE.

SUMMARY:

This bill increases, from one to two years after property tax becomes due on real property, that a municipality has a “silent (unrecorded) lien” on the property under CGS 12-272 for the taxes. It thus makes this provision consistent with CGS 12-275, which gives a tax collector two years from the tax due date to file a certificate on the land records to continue the lien.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2007
