The Assessor is required by Connecticut Law to list and value all real and personal property. Valuation is subject to ad valorem taxation on an assessment grand list each year. The "ad valorem" basis for taxation means that all property should be taxed "according to value," which is the definition of ad valorem. Motor vehicles are assessed each year, utilizing the October issue of a national pricing manual, at 70 percent of the average retail value.

The Assessor does not raise or lower taxes. The Assessor does not make the laws that affect property owners.

The Assessor's Office has nothing to do with the total amount of taxes collected. The Assessor's primary responsibility is to estimate the fair market value of your property, so that you may pay only your fair share of the taxes. The tax rate is determined by all the taxing agencies within the Town, and is the basis for the budget needed or demanded by the voters to provide for services, such as schools, roads, law enforcement, etc. Tax rates are simply those rates that will provide funds to pay for those services.

The Tax Collector's role is to collect payment for taxes.  If you disagree with your bill, you should see the Assessor, Chandler Rose at the Chaplin Town Hall.  To make a payment there is a drop box located at the Town Hall (no cash), you can pay online or in person at the Tax Collector's office located in Willimantic.
