MUNICIPAL INCOME TAX

By: Kevin E. McCarthy, Principal Analyst

You asked whether Connecticut municipalities can impose an income tax.

Municipalities only have the powers the state grants them, and in Connecticut these powers do not include the power to impose an income tax. While there has been some informal discussion in the legislature of granting municipalities this power, there have been no bills on the subject in the past ten years.
