How is the Mill Rate determined?

During May of each year the Greenwich Board of Estimate and Taxation determines the mill rate for the upcoming fiscal year. (By statute, all Connecticut cities and towns have a uniform fiscal year which runs from July 1 through the following June 30.) (CGS 7-383).  The mill rate is determined by dividing the amount of revenue required by the Town (determined during the January through May budget process) by the total assessed value of all taxable property. Under Connecticut law assessed value of property must be 70% of present true and actual value.  (CGS 12-62a)
