The Tax Collector’s office collects Real Estate, Personal Property and Motor Vehicle taxes following all state statutes and town ordinances. The taxes fund the governmental expenses of the Town for the fiscal year July 1st to June 30rd. There is no separate tax for education. 

Taxes are assessed by the Tax Assessor, and then billed by the Tax Collector. Questions regarding assessment, adjustments and exemptions should be directed to the Assessor’s office at 860-355-0376.

Taxes are based on the assessed value. This assessment is multiplied by the Town’s mill rate. As of July 1, 2017 the mill rate is 20.33 mills for every $1,000 of assessed value.
