The personal finance website WalletHub.com compared these taxes in the 50 states and Washington, D.C., and the results are nothing to celebrate in the Nutmeg State. Connecticut residents pay the sixth highest amount on real estate, with the average tax bill being $3,301, and the fifth highest amount on motor vehicles, with the average tax levy being $630. Connecticut was one of only two states to make the Top Ten lists in both categories (the other was Rhode Island). See both Top Ten lists at the end of this article.
