I'd like to have an idea about property taxes in CT(I'm focusing on Fairfield County but a general overview will be appreciated).
I'm considering a residential property with a value of $ 1.000.000 more or less.
Thank you.

In general a 1500 sq ft House in Norwalk on .50 acres would be around 6100/yr. Every house varies depending on renovations/land/size/location.

Check the real estate listings on one of the local realtor (like Raveis) for the taxes on homes in your price range. They can vary significantly by town. Jay

It depends on what town you are looking in. Up in the Danbury area, between 7500 and $19,000 with the average being somewhere around $12,000. They do very by town.

If there's a particular area or certain homes that you are looking at, you can always use zillow.com -- it posts last year taxes in the profile of each home. It has a lot of other info as well, but definitely includes tax info.

Is there somewhere where I can get information as to visiting actor/actressess homes in Greenwich? Is that even allowed?

Thank you.

Take the million $ times it by .7; that gives you your tax base for the mill rate. Find out the towns mill rate and multiply it.

ie.: 1,000,000 x .7 = 700,000 mill rate of .2

.02 x 700,000 = $14,000 would be property tax per annum. Also note CT taxes your car & other property at towns mill rate with same formula.

We also have the highest mainland US petro/gas tax and third behind NY & NJ in overall tax rate structure.



P.S. I am a CPA so I do have an idea on this one.

Do you mean like going inside to tour the place?

Connecticut is not like California where the stars live life large. They come here to get away from that and live a quiet life. I remember seeing Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward shopping at a discount department store years ago and just acting like anyone else. People knew who they were but they were treated like anybody else. That is why they live dhere for so long. Jay
