Connecticut’s property tax system has been called flawed, broken and in need of reform – so why does nothing ever change?
Our state’s reliance on property taxes to fund municipal services means wild inequities in the cost of living from one town to the next – and spurs sprawling growth in some communities, searching for taxable property to pay the bills.
So, how to fix these problems? A property tax cap – as proposed by Governor Rell? A big decrease in state aid – meant to spark regionalization? That’s being floated in New Jersey.
Today, Where We Live, we’re live at the state Capitol – for a forum on property tax
reform. We’ll talk to lawmakers and policy analysts.
