Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
The Connecticut DOR does not administer the property tax.
The property tax is administered by each city and town in Connecticut.
If you have questions about the tax bill or mil rate on your real property or personal property (including your automobile), you should contact the Tax Collector in the town in which the property is located.
Let me know if you need any help.

Personal property of businesses (computers, office furniture, equipment, etc.), whether owned or leased, is taxed on an annual basis. Assessments are based on seventy percent of the depreciated value.All owners of business personal property must complete and return a personal property declaration to the Assessor no later than November 1st annually. If the declaration is not filed, the Assessor is required by State Statute to complete a declaration for the owner with an estimated assessment, and add a 25% penalty thereto. A penalty is also assessed if the declaration is submitted after the November 1st deadline. Forms can be downloaded (below), but must be printed and mailed or submitted in person to the Assessor's office.The information required on the declaration form includes the date of acquisition of the property, as well as its costs of acquisition including installation. This information is confidential and not open to public inspection.
if you have a question with reporting any specific items - please state here what are these items, what are their depreciated values - and I will help you with filing a declaration.
You should not use the amount of depreciation deduction which you claimed.
Instead use a list of all depreciable properties which are claimed in the form 4562 Depreciation and Amortization.
For each property - take the adjusted basis - that value will be used to compute your property taxes.
Before filing the form - get a list of all business use properties and for each - determine the adjusted basis.
I feel sorry that I was not able to help you.
Sometimes it is really hard to talk over the forum without direct communication...
You do not need to accept the answer that was not helpful for you.
I wish you the best in completing the task and sorry again.
