Grand List Information
Mill Rate is 28.2 Mill
Each town in Connecticut is required by law to revalue all real estate at least once every 5 years. Previous revaluation was complete as of 10/1/2008. Next scheduled revaluation will be by 10/1/2013.
During the revaluation, the market value of each property is estimated, then 70 percent is the assessment assigned to each property. Property taxes are computed by multiplying the mill rate by the assessment.
