When selling a vehicle...

Taxpayers must ALWAYS remember to keep a copy of the cancellation of motor vehicle registration (Plate Receipt) and a copy of the Bill of Sale form or keep a copy of both sides of the Certificate of Title showing the transfer of title for their own records.

 

The Assessor’s Office requires two (2) forms of proof in order to adjust taxes.

 

The Bill of Sale H-31 form taken from the CT DMV website is an acceptable form if the taxpayer is selling the vehicle. If the taxpayer already has a Bill of Sale form or has filled out the back of the Certificate of Title, that is also sufficient.

 

For other types of transactions:

 

  • Totally Damaged/Junked
  • Removed from Connecticut and registered out of state
  • Stolen, not recovered
  • Repossessed
  • Traded in (and license plate cancelled)

 

One should always keep a copy of the cancellation of motor vehicle registration (Plate Receipt) and a copy of the necessary document which shows proof of a specific transaction.

 

See Municipal Tax Obligations Concerning Motor Vehicle Property Tax

 

This will explain just what documents are necessary for specific transactions.

 

Please contact the Assessor’s Office at (860) 828-7039 with any questions.
