Penalty Cancellation Request

Any Taxpayer may request cancellation of a penalty assessed on a secured or unsecured property, either in writing, or by submitting a completed and signed Penalty Cancellation Request Form. In general, the Treasurer and Tax Collector (TTC) attempts to respond to all requests within 60 days.

  • Approval of a Penalty Cancellation Request

If the request for penalty cancellation is approved, the TTC will respond to the taxpayer confirming the cancellation.

  • Denial of a Penalty Cancellation Request

If the request for penalty cancellation is denied, the TTC will respond to the taxpayer explaining the reason for the denial.

  • Appealing a Decision

Whenever a request for penalty cancellation is denied, the TTC response will state that the taxpayer may appeal the decision, and will provide the Taxpayer with the appropriate instructions.
