Coastal Connecticut's 2020 Property Tax Rates

March 17, 2020

Throughout Connecticut, properties are taxed using a mill rate. In this formula, one mill equals one dollar of taxes due per $1,000 of assessed property value. For example, if a town has a mill rate of $23.45, it means that the homeowner must pay $23.45 for every $1,000 of property value annually.

The assessed rate of a home in Connecticut is 70% of its appraised value. So if you own a home with an estimated worth of $500,000, you'll only have to pay property taxes on $350,000 of it.
