I agree. And it will never happen. Take care. Tom Worthington


If it seems that bracket racing has gotten too expensive for you, maybe you are just doing it wrong.

Those aren't taxes.
You want taxes, move to Connecticut.

To start, we have Property Taxes on houses, vehicles, trailers, boats, RV's, ATV's, golf carts, office furniture and supplies, basically EVERYTHING. This tax is PAID EVERY YEAR in July to your town.

The Property tax MILL RATE is 45.00 mills or $45.00 per $1,000 of assessment. For ALL vehicles they use the NADA value, for houses they use the last assessment (every 3 years).

This is on top of the statewide SALES tax rate of 6.35% which applies to EVERYTHING you purchase including via the internet.
Including Cars, Trucks, Tables, Chairs, clothes, shoes, school supplies, EVERYTHING.

If you go out to eat to a restaurant (yes, even McDonalds) you will pay a sales tax of 7.35%. Yes, 1% more.

So to start, for a $250,000 house assessment you pay $11,250 EVERY YEAR in July.
A $50,000 vehicle assessment you pay $2250 EVERY YEAR in July.
Add in your Car Trailer, ATV's, Golf carts, Motorcycles, Boats, RV's, etc it's another $10,000 PER YEAR easy.

Then we have the ALL LOVING Income tax of between 5% to 7% depending on how much you make ($10,000 = 5% up to $1 MILLION = 7%).
They even tax your retirement AND Social Security at the FULL INCOME TAX RATE of whatever you make.

The best part is since everything is inflated now, my 2002 ATC car trailer WAS assessed (2021) at $2000, this year (2022) it's accessed for $12,500. Yes, it was $90, now it's $562.50 EVERY YEAR.

The reason they tax us so much is because of all the dooner system suckers getting free food, free rent, free heat, free transportation, free Narcan, free medical, free dental WHICH EQUATES to the Dem Politicians getting re-elected every year because they keep giving them MORE FREE STUFF.
The fact is there are more 'System Suckers" than workers here in CT.
There are 3.6 million people in CT but only 1.5 working people.

Simple math, How can 1.5 million pay for 3.6 million. They pay these people WAY too much to stay home and not work.

And here's the REAL KICKER, one of my wife's girl friends and husband won the CT Lottery for $5.5 million a couple years ago. They quit their jobs.
They bought ALL THEY WANTED, cars, trucks, a giant house, quads, boats, etc, and have all their $$ in the stock market, BUT since they don't have any income they are on STATE ASSISTANCE of Food Stamps & Free Heat.
WTF

Yes, we need the Fairtax.


Frank, there is no way I would stay in the place.

Shake head

Wow Frank!

Next time I pay my quarterly RE taxes in NJ, I'll just be thankful I don't live in Connecticut!

In NJ, we don't pay tax on non prepared food (groceries) and clothing. Years ago there was stink when Florio implemented a tax on Toilet Paper! Pun intended Big Grin

What happens if you pay your yearly RE taxes but not yearly taxes for vehicles,trailers,tractors...?
How do they know if you have them if not registered?


Cool

Yes.
That is why we are moving in the next couple years (hopefully).

CT goes by your registration/mailing address, if its registered in CT you will get a tax on it. And when you buy it, by law the seller/dealer has to notify the state, if not, THEY/SELLER will be charged Property tax UNTIL someone else has it registered to them (ask me how I know). This goes for cars, trucks, trailers, etc. Who ever the last registered owner is gets the tax bill.

Sold a car and the ******* never registered it, so it showed us still as the owners. That was a surprise come tax time. That's why you need 2 "Bill of Sales" one for them, one for you in case they don't register it you can prove you sold it. No Bill of Sale, you pay until its registered again by someone else. Bad part is you don't know if someone doesn't register it until tax time, AND you still need to pay until they clear it off your name. And NO, you don't get a refund.

CT also has an agreement with MANY ajoining states where CT receives a list from the other states of property from ANYONE that has a Connecticut mailing address from ANOTHER state. (How I know) I tried to register my quads in another state so we could ride on their trails (Quads had to be registered in THAT state), boy did I get my AZZ in HOT WATER. All sorts of fines, cops came and confiscated the quads, I had to go to court to get them back, BIG F'ING mess. Had to get an attorney, cost me $6000 to get $10,000 worth of quads back between fines, court fees, and attorney fees. And the WORST part was they were still registered in CT, we just wanted to ride in another state (which required a registration from that state).

CT splits the tax $$$ and fines with them (free $$ to the other state or whoever) OR split it with the NEIGHBOR that turns a PERSON in to the state for an unregistered vehicle. Happens a lot around here.
Hence why most CT residents trailers are registered in CT, the fines, and fees are KILLERS if your neighbor rats you out.

Yeah, don't get me started on Quarterlies for our Business (i.e. taxes on desks, chairs, computers, etc.)
