This week’s list counts down the 16 highest mill rates in Connecticut, ranging from 34.99 to a high of 74.29 at No. 1.
A few small-to-medium towns made the list, though most of the highest mill rates were found in Connecticut’s cities and larger towns. ____________________________ Connecticut's 16 Lowest Mill Rates ____________________________________________________
(Property taxes are calculated as the number of mills for every $1,000 of assessed value. A home in Meriden assessed at $500,000 owed $17,495 in 2013.)
The list does not include boroughs, fire or special tax districts in the mill rates.
