The Assessor’s Office is responsible for discovering, listing, and valuing all real estate, motor vehicles, and personal property for the annual Grand List. The office also assists the public with tax exempt programs; and provides information on buildings, land maps, and property ownership in Town.
Grand List Information
Each town in Connecticut is required by law to revalue all real estate at least once every 5 years. East Granby’s last revaluation was completed on 10/1/2018.
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.
2020 Mill Rates
Real Estate & Personal Property—33.6 mills
Motor Vehicles—33.6 mills
Motor Vehicle Tax Information
In Connecticut all bills are as of October 1st. Motor vehicle values are obtained from the Nada guide book.
To remove or prorate a motor vehicle on a tax list, you must provide two forms of proof to the Assessor’s Office. One of these proofs must address the disposition of the plate, either by cancellation at the DMV, or transfer to another vehicle. Second acceptable proofs are a bill of sale, transfer of title, out of state registration, police report, trade-in document, junkyard receipt, or insurance document indicating cancellation and why. All documents must clearly identify the vehicle, including the vin number.
