Default CT county income tax rates

All,

I'm trying to determine the county income tax rates in western CT. I've found that for the state, above $20k in income, the rule is "multiply the excess over $20,000.00 by 0.05 and add $600.00".

What about county income taxes? I pay .75% in Fairfield County Ohio (Ohio has a great tool to look this stuff up!) and an additional .75% for school income tax.

Anyone know?

thanks,
Bill S.

There is no county tax system. You pay your local taxes to the town you live in which is by the "mill rate" set by each town which is then multiplied by value of your property (house, car, boat, etc). Then you pay Income tax directly to the state, and then Federal tax. The tax brackets are on the CT tax website.

Counties are just geographic areas in Connecticut. There are no County governments and thus no County taxes, just State and local. The state levies a State Income Tax and State Sales Taxes. The local government levies local property taxes on homes and vehicles. Connecticut is a small state and it is completely divided into 169 separate towns with no unincorporated areas. They realized that there was no need for an additional layer of government in the state and did away with it years ago.

There are no separate school taxes either. That comes out of the local taxes. There are a few places where you may pay a fire district tax but that is usually very small and not very common. Hope this helps, Jay

Bill - I believe that the list you have is the mill rates for each of the communities listed. This is the amount of tax per $1000 assessed value of a property in that town used to calculate your local property tax. Jay
