If you own a Motor Vehicle in Connecticut on October 1 of any year, you are liable for property tax on your motor vehicle. The Assessor's Office values all vehicles at 70 percent of current market value using State recommended price guides and available market data.
A prorated credit may be processed by the Assessor's Office if the vehicle was stolen and not recovered, totally destroyed, sold or registered in another state after October 1, when written documentation is provided.
Transfer of Plates
If the vehicle is replaced by another using the same registration plates, a credit will be applied automatically to your Supplemental Tax bill for the replacement vehicle the following January.
Automobile owners who wish to appeal the assessment on their vehicles must appear at the September meeting of the Board of Assessment Appeals. The next meeting will be held in September 2019 in the Town Hall. No appointment is necessary.
