The mill rate for New Haven is 42.21 (ouch!). The good news is it will stay the same this year. We are in the middle of a 5 year phase-in of the revaluation. The city last week agreed to not do the 2009 phase-in. So in theory, a property owner's tax bill should be the same. This is good news for buyers because you won't have to budget an increase in the escrow part of your mortgage payment for at least this year.
