State Assistance Keeps Vernon Property Tax Rate Below 40 Mills

July 5, 2019

On every Town of Vernon tax bill:

"The fiscal year 2019-2020 budget for the Town of Vernon estimates that $18,429,843 will be received from the State of Connecticut for various State financed programs. Without this assistance, your 2019-2020 property tax rate would be 49.90 mills instead of 39.63 mills. (The foregoing statement is required by CGS 12-130)"

The Town of Vernon is actually scheduled to receive $20,752,017 in the 2019-2020 budget year, $2.3 million more than the above estimate.

Put another way, 29% of the Town's revenue is provided by the State of Connecticut.
