Connecticut Pays a High Price for Tax Breaks

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

Planning to attend a concert? Be prepared to pay the state admissions tax - unless the performance is held at the New Haven Coliseum, Ocean Beach Park in New London, or one of a few other select venues.

WestportNow.com Image

Looking to store something? If it’s a boat, you’re in luck—no tax. If it’s furniture, add the state’s 6 percent to the bill.

Commercial parking lots and garages have been subject to sales tax for nearly two decades now, but not valet parking at airports.

Connecticut has more than $5.3 billion worth of exemptions, credits and other tax breaks on its books, including more than $3 billion on its sales tax alone, according to a new report from the legislature’s Office of Fiscal Analysis.

Firefighters Quickly Douse Garage Fire

Westport firefighters today quickly extinguished flames which erupted in a pile of oil-stained rags in a detached garage on Kings Highway South.

Assistant Chief Larry Conkling said the department responded to a 5:40 p.m. 911 call of a fire in a garage at 46 Kings Highway South.

He said the fire was contained to a pile of oil-stained rags and a few cans of stain. Personal items were damaged by heat and smoke, he said.

The Fire Department reminded residents that they should use extreme caution when performing maintenance on outdoor furniture and decks and discarding oil-based finish and linseed oil-soaked rags.
