Motor Vehicle Taxation
The motor vehicle list is developed with the help of the
Department of Motor Vehicles
Pursuant to Section 14-163 of the
Connecticut General Statutes
, the commissioner of Motor Vehicles is required to furnish to the assessor a list of motor vehicles and their owners.
Assessed Value Calculation
Assessed values are based on "Clean Retail" value published in the October issue of the
National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA)
price guide. This valuation guide is recommended by
Connecticut Association of Assessing Officers
annually to the
Office of Policy and Management
which accepts the use of the recommended guide to all 169 municipalities. To appeal a motor vehicle assessment, refer to the Board of Assessment Appeal section of the Assessor website.
