State of Connecticut: The Report of the Governor's Commission on Tax Reform. Volume II--Local Government, Schools and Property.
Governor's Commission on Tax Reform, Hartford, CT.
The Commission made an in depth study of the entire tax structure of Connecticut and developed a model for tax reform for the State that would allow for lessening of inequities for many classes of taxpayers and create a more favorable climate for industry to increase employment for Connecticut people. This volume (the second of three) contains four parts, all related to local level problems. A complete review of, and recommendations with respect to, the property tax are contained in the first part. School finance and a detailed proposal for local option equalization with projections through 1985 for each town are contained in the second part. Proposals for reform of the assessment system, including an estimate of revenues presently being lost through improper (and unlawful) underassessments are set forth in the third part. A recommendation for a Uniform Municipal Practices Act dealing with referendum requirements, town budgets, and town financial reporting is contained in the final section. (Author/JF)
