Legal Alert: Connecticut Real Estate & Personal Property Tax Exemption Form M-3 Due 11/1/17

Please see the important information below regarding Form M-3, which you must file with your Town Tax Assessor by November 1 to preserve (or secure) property tax exemption for real and personal property owned by your nonprofit.

Nonprofit organizations that qualify for exemption from Connecticut town taxes on real property or personal property are required to file a quadrennial report with the assessor in each town in which they own such property. The report is filed every fourth year beginning with Nov. 1, 1965.

The report is filed on Form M-3, Exemption Application. This is the year to do it – Form M-3 is due by November 1, 2017.

Generally, 501(c)(3) organizations are eligible for exemption. Some other types of entities may qualify. Failure to file Form M-3 by the due date may waive the organization’s right to the exemption.

If you did not receive a Form M-3 in the mail, check your town assessor’s website or call the assessor.

If you have any questions about the form, we recommend contacting your town assessor.

If you have any other questions, please contact Pro Bono Partnership at 914-328-0674 for organizations located in Fairfield County or at 860-541-4951 for organizations located elsewhere in Connecticut.
