- IMPORTANT -

The CT Legislature has 2 bills pending regarding antique car owners and potentially all motor vehicle owners.

HB-5164 proposes the elimination of "year of manufacture" plates. This may not be acted upon this year.

HB-5102 proposes increasing the taxable value of antique autos from $500.00 to $2500.00, and changes the definition of an antique auto from 20 to 30 years. It also proposes a statewide mill rate for automobile taxes which will be collected by the state and redistributed as they see fit, rather than the individual towns collecting the taxes and using them locally.

You may see more at the 4Cs website - www.ctccc.net or the CT General Asembly website - www.cga.ct.gov
