Car Taxes Could Be Eliminated Under Connecticut Budget Plan
Could Connecticut's car property tax disappear?
Can I get a "Hallelujah?" Taxes are killing us in Connecticut. I certainly know we aren't the only state in the country with high taxes, but we need a break. Whether we'll get it or not is entirely questionable, but this news got my hopes up, at least a little bit.
The Hartford Courant is reporting that Connecticut's property tax on motor vehicles could be going away soon. The state budget agreement reached by legislative leaders would get rid of the car tax in the second year of the two year budget package. House Republican leader Themis Klarides told the Courant:
The car tax would be totally eliminated in the second year. You would no longer pay a tax on your car
Before you or I start figuring out what we're going to spend our extra money on, the budget still has to be approved by the Governor, and we all know the devil is always in the details. Turns out, that not only has this proposal been made in the past and not approved, but legislators will also have to find out how to replace the beau-coup bucks that the car property tax generates for cities and towns.
I, for one, am still keeping my fingers crossed.
