There are Connecticut State Statutes that provide tax relief for qualifying persons who are disabled and/or over 65 years of age. Other Statutes provide exemptions for veterans, totally disabled persons and the blind. The State of Connecticut also makes special provisions (for reducing the assessment) of land that may be classified as Farmland, Forestland, or Open Space Land. If you now have an exemption, it will automatically be deducted from your assessment for the July 2022 tax bill. If you have any questions regarding these programs, please call the Assessor’s Office at 203-879-8100 ext 108.
