Conveyance Tax

Any document that registers a transfer of property is subject to a conveyance tax to the State of Connecticut and to the Town of Woodbridge. When recording such a document, a Real Estate Conveyance Tax Return form (OP-236) must be filed at the same time and the taxes must be paid along with the recording fee.  The tax is computed as follows:

State Tax

    Residential property and unimproved land        .0075 x consideration
    Residential property over $800,000                   .0075 x $800,000 plus .0125 x amount over $800,000

Town Tax

    All categories                                                         .0025 x consideration
    Conveyance Fee                                                    $2 per transfer
