Just found a problem that probably affects all connecticut 968 owners (at least it did on my '92). Hopefully everybody noticed the incorrect assessment on your motor vehicle tax bill for last year and this year.
This year my town tax assessor actually figured out what happened, and i thought i'd share it.
Apparently in the last 2 years the CT DMV now sends the vehicle value to the towns along with the list of cars owned in their town.
Their software looks at the first 8 digits of the VIN to determine model, and the year digit to determine year. Guess what else has the same first 8 digits? the 92 Carrera turbo, which has a book value of 34K My tax bill arrived with a 24K assesed value (70% of full value), instead of the roughly 7K it should have.
Our assessor said it will probably happen every year untill the DMV figures out their mistake. At the speed of the local DMV, that should be about the same time as our sun becomes a supernova and swallows the earth in the year 24531.......
Anyway, i figured i'd explain it for anyone else who was questioning it, and for those of you who didn't notice it? you should read your bills a little more carefully next time....... :-)
