February 05, 2009
Despite dips in tax revenue on manufacturing equipment and motor vehicles, Hartford officials said the October 2008 grand list grew by $17.5 million, marking the fourth consecutive year that the list of all taxable property has increased.
Mayor Eddie A. Perez acknowledged that although 2008 was a difficult year for investors, families and businesses, momentum continued, with several new businesses opening.

1. Hartford Fire Insurance and Twin City Ins., $142,713,228
The $26.5 million drop in personal property assessments was partly attributable to the statewide phase-out of the local property tax on manufacturing machinery and equipment. The $2.55 billion total for real estate was up by $321.5 million. The majority of the increase was attributed to a phase-in of the state-mandated 2006 property revaluation. The motor vehicle grand list decreased by $1.9 million.
