Motor Vehicle Assessments

If you own a Motor Vehicle in Connecticut on October first of any year, you are liable for property taxes on your motor vehicle.

The Assessor's Office values all vehicles at seventy percent of current market value using State recommended price guides and available market data.

Adjustments to Your Motor Vehicle Tax
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 1st, when written documentation is provided.

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.

Required Proof for Adjustment of Motor Vehicle Bills:

  • Copy of dated registration from another state
  • Copy of the receipt given by Connecticut DMV when registration and plates are returned to them.
  • Copy of dated bill of sale with both buyer and seller signatures
  • Statement from insurance carrier indicating the vehicle description and the date, and reason for cancellation
  • Receipt from junkyard dealer indicating the vehicle description and the date of disposal

Motor Vehicle Assessment Appeals
Automobile owners, who wish to appeal the assessment on their vehicles, may appear at the September meeting of the Board of Assessment Appeals.
