This data allows citizens to view who received payments from the state for goods or services and how much they received. The data can be explored by searching for specific payee names or by browsing by Government Function. The Open Checkbook app( http://opencheckbook.ct.gov) allows the user to drill down from aggregated spending accounts all the way down to each individual payment to a payee.
The data is updated nightly and therefore reflects current spending activities more accurately than any other publicly available source. In general the data reflects all payments made up to 24 to 48 hours prior to view.
Certain payee names have been removed in order to protect the privacy of individuals, in accordance with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations or where the information is otherwise protected by law.
Redacted information includes:
•Payees who are statutorily protected
•Information that would lead to violating HIPAA laws
•Information of Minors
A mill is equal to $1.00 of tax for each $1,000 of assessment. To calculate the property tax, multiply the assessment of the property by the mill rate and divide by 1,000. For example, a property with an assessed value of $50,000 located in a municipality with a mill rate of 20 mills would have a property tax bill of $1,000 per year.
Local property tax mill rates have been set for individual Connecticut municipalities for fiscal year 2016-2017. These rates are based upon the 2015 grand list and are available below. These are the most current mill rates and are reflected in each municipality's July 2016 tax bills
PLEASE NOTE: We know there are errors in the data although we strive to minimize them. Examples include:
• Manifests completed incorrectly by the generator or the transporter - data was entered based on the incorrect information. We can only enter the information we receive.
• Data entry errors – we now have QA/QC procedures in place to prevent or catch and fix a lot of these.
• Historically there are multiple records of the same generator. Each variation in spelling in name or address generated a separate handler record. We have worked to minimize these but many remain. The good news is that as long as they all have the same EPA ID they will all show up in your search results.
• Handlers provide erroneous data to obtain an EPA ID - data entry was based on erroneous information. Examples include incorrect or bogus addresses and names. There are also a lot of MISSPELLED NAMES AND ADDRESSES!
• Missing manifests – Not every required manifest gets submitted to the DEP. Also, of the more than 100,000 paper manifests we receive each year, some were incorrectly handled and never entered.
• Missing data – we know that the records for approximately 25 boxes of manifests, mostly prior to 1985 were lost from the database in the 1980’s.
• Translation errors – the data has been migrated to newer data platforms numerous times, and each time there have been errors and data losses.
• Wastes incorrectly entered – mostly due to complex names that were difficult to spell, or typos in quantities or units of measure.
