The Town Assessor's Office administers the Town's property tax program in accordance with Connecticut General Statutes. On an annual basis, the Assessor's Office compiles the Grand List of taxable and tax exempt property. This listing is composed of real estate, motor vehicles, and personal property owned or leased by town businesses.
The Mill Rate for the 2016 Grand List is 30.63
The July 2017 Tax Bills are for the 2016 Grand List (covering the assessment year beginning October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017), but are paid during the fiscal year running from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018. Taxes are due without penalty by August 1, 2017. If you do not receive a tax bill on your property or motor vehicle by July 15, 2017 please call 860-429-3374. Adjustments to your motor vehicle tax bills may only be made with two proofs of disposal. (see Motor Vehicle Tax Bills Q&A).

Defective Concrete and Crumbling Foundations
Mansfield is one of about twenty plus municipalities in Northeastern Connecticut known to have properties built using defective concrete in building foundations. Legislation has recently passed allowing owners of properties built in 1983 or later, who have been impacted by defective concrete, to receive a reduced property assessment. You must, however, have a licensed, professional engineer inspect your property and provide you with a written report indicating that your property has defective concrete. A copy of the engineer’s report must be submitted to the Assessor’s Office, and the assessment staff must also inspect your property. For more information about the process of receiving a reduced assessment, please contact our office by phone: (860)429-3311 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

We will pro-rate bills by the month. Recommended proofs of disposal may be found on this list. We are audited by the State and are required to have proof of disposal for adjustments.

Cancellation of registration must be made through the Department of Motor Vehicles and plates must be returned. Mail a copy of the signed receipt (with manner of disposal) from the Department of Motor Vehicles to your local Assessor's Office for adjustments.
