Town of Stonington Supplemental Motor Vehicle List Question

Q:   I moved to another Connecticut town after October 1st and purchased a new and or used motor vehicle in which I transferred the same registration. Why am I taxed on the supplemental list in the town of Stonington?

A:    In order to receive a credit toward the tax for a new purchase of a vehicle you need to receive a bill from the town in which you paid a tax on the October 1st vehicle, that was sold or traded-in for the newly acquired vehicle.
