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
