The total value of taxable property in New Canaan—including homes, commercial properties and motor vehicles—increased by about $43 million from 2019 to 2020, according to preliminary figures.

Given a mill rate of 18.164, the year-over-year increase in funds for the town from the taxable property would come to about $782,865. The Grand List’s $7.8 billion total reflects upticks in the total value of taxable real estate and personal property and motor vehicles. Here’s a table that details year-over-year growth:
