Conn. governor signs order extending tax deadline
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has signed an executive order extending the deadline for Connecticut residents who pay local property taxes on a quarterly basis.
The governor's 26th order extends the deadline from Thursday to Nov. 15.
Malloy said it will take some time for life to get back to normal in Connecticut following the superstorm that hit the state on Monday. He said this order will "give residents some breathing room to avoid accumulating interest fees."
Also on Thursday, Malloy released a set of aerial photographs and video of damage along the state's shoreline taken by the Connecticut National Guard. The images can be downloaded on Malloy's Flickr page and the video can be viewed on his YouTube page.
