The total value of taxable property in New Canaan—including homes, commercial properties and motor vehicles—increased by $50.7 million from 2016 to 2017, according to preliminary figures.
Given a mill rate of about 17, the year-over-year increase in funds for the town from the taxable property would come to about $861,000. The figure is nearly $500,000 less than it has been in recent years.
The Grand List’s $8.3 billion total reflects upticks in the total value of taxable real estate and personal property and a slight decline in motor vehicles. Here’s a table that details year-over-year growth:
