Motor Vehicle Taxation

      

The Assessor is responsible for the fair and equitable assessment of all motor vehicles within a municipality during an assessment year. The Department of Motor Vehicles provides each municipality with a list of all the registered vehicles in Town as of October 1st annually. The registered owner receives the tax bill in July which covers the time period from the prior October 1st thru the following September 30th.


How did you arrive at the value on my automobile?           

Connecticut Assessors utilize the NADA (National Auto Dealers Assoc.) appraisal guide for automobile valuations. Assessments are based on 70% of the clean retail value.            

I sold my motor vehicle, how do I remove it from tax rolls? Am I entitled to a tax credit?            

If you sell, dispose or move a motor vehicle out of state and the CT registration has been canceled, you may be entitled to a tax adjustment if you submit the proper documentation to the Assessor’s Office. Please see Proof of vehicle disposal.            

However, if a registration was transferred during a grand list year there is no adjustment. A credit of any overpaid tax will be applied toward the bill for the new vehicle that will appear on the Supplemental billing cycle at the end of the year in December. Please note that you are responsible to pay the entire bill issued in July (both installments).

In accordance with the Connecticut General Statute Sec. 12-71-c, proof must be provided within 27 months of the assessment date. The deadline for filing for a property tax credit is as follows:

Motor vehicles appearing on the October 1, 2016 Grand List  can be adjusted until December 31, 2018.
