How Your Bridgeport Taxes Are Determined

Taxes are assessed as of October 1, they are levied (or collected) on the following July 1, and are due in two installments due July 1 and January 1. Liens are filed on the last day of the fiscal year (June 30).

Taxes are based on the assessed value of property multiplied by the current mill rate. For more information about Property Tax Assessment, please see the Tax Assessors Page.

One mill is equal to $1.00 of tax for each $1,000 of assessment. For the fiscal year 2012-2013, the mill rate is 41.11 mills. For the fiscal year 2013-2014 it is 41.855

Example:

Mill Rate: 41.855 mills (.041855)
Assessed value is $200,000

$200,000 x .041855= $8,371
