Filing for the 10/1/2016 Grand List

Personal Property:      Personal property declarations are being mailed to all businesses on the October 1st 2016 Grand List.  New businesses should request forms from the Assessor.   All owners of tangible personal property are required by Connecticut General Statutes to file annually with the Assessor.  Unregistered motor vehicles and vehicles registered out-of-state and garaged in Salem must also be declared.

Failure to File:  Section 12-42 of the Connecticut General Statutes requires the Assessor to file a listing for those who fail to file or file late and add a 25% penalty to the listing.  The deadline to file is November 1, 2016.

Veterans claiming disability exemptions for the first time must submit proof from the Veterans Administration to the Assessor during the Assessment period stating the percentage of disability in order to receive the proper amount of exemption on the 2016 Grand list.  All others need only file if their percentage of disability changed since 10/1/2010.
