 The Town’s Tax Collector collects taxes on real estate, personal property, and motor vehicles.  Tax rates are determined under the direction of the Board of Finance through the municipal budget process, with the annual tax rate (or mill rate) depending on how much money is needed to fund the municipal budget and how much property is available to be taxed (equalized grand list) as of the assessment date (grand list date) of October 1.  Like all towns in Connecticut, Branford operates on a uniform fiscal year, beginning July 1 and ending the following June 30.  Tax bills are issued July 1 each year and payments are due semiannually in July (first installment) and the following January (second installment).  Motor Vehicle bills are due in ONE installment. The current mill rate is 25.59 .

     State statutes dictate the procedures to be followed for the billing and collection of taxes and the record keeping involved and also govern when and how bills are sent, what notice is to be given or published concerning taxes, the rate and applicability of interest, how liens are applied; and what means of delinquent collections are permitted.
