Absolutely. But it is a good indicator of what one could expect to pay.

The tax thing can be confusing- towns right now are basing taxes on the 2011 grand list. The great majority of towns are on a July & January payment schedule. That is, the taxes being paid in July of 2012 & January 2013 are based upon the October 2011 grand list. The 2011 mill rates were just set this past spring.

You can use the state info as already provided or call any town in which you have an interest. Some towns also have fire district, sewer district taxes that have to be added in or borough taxes, etc.

Just ask the town what their 2011 mill rate is and if there any additional taxes.

Southington. Decent schools, easy access to Bristol and I84 (which is the best way into NY), variety of housing. Bristol schools aren't great, otherwise you could consider it.

what about litchfield? is that far from Bristol?

have question bout the mill rates too. If the mill rates increase on your property, can the town drop your property value on your home substantially too?
Heard some towns had dropped property values on peoples home, but their mill rate & taxes went up anyway!

The town can do whatever they want to achieve their budget.
