Middletown, CT asked in Tax Law for Connecticut

Q: CT Gen Stat § 12-71c (2012) It seems I may be 6 months late with regard to arguing my case here.

My partner and I went down to the town's tax office the day we turned in our plates. Were told the taxes due would be around $18, considering the car was totaled 23 days after the "list date".

Fast forward 2.5 years, and we owe back taxes on the newer car. Now we find out we owe $284.28 on the totaled car, plus $89.55 in interest.

Any ideas?

A: Do you have proof that you complied with the requirements of the Statute. If not, then you may be out of luck. Have you tried discussing this with the tax assesor in the town? That may be your only course of action available.
