Here is a link to CT mill rates. It is based on 2011 grand list for fiscal year 2013.

Taxes are determined by the assessment multiplied by the town mill rate.

The state publishes a list of each towns mill rate at http://www.ct.gov/opm/lib/opm/igp/dataresc/millrts/2013_gl_f…

Important - as it is not off of the sale price but the assessment, you can have two similarly priced homes with various taxes. Likewise, the town with the lowest mill rate doesn't necessary means the lowest taxes. Some towns with a low mill rates have higher average sales price.

If I can help with any mortgage questions or financing questions, please email me direct at tim.martin@nemmortgage.com or 203-917-2800. I'm right in Fairfield County, CT

The taxes depend on the mil rate. However, any listing will have the breakdown of the assessed value,the mil rate and the actual taxes. You can also go into each town's website to see how taxes are determined. If I can be of any help in your homesearch please let me know.
