Up until July, Vermont would take your money and issue a registration and plate - and you didn't have to live or even go to Vermont. Hence, lots of questionable Vermont tags around town. Sorry, but we need more law compliance and enforcement of current laws, not less. As for what I initially proposed, hire someone in the assessors office to match property tax payments with no vehicle tax payments. Send those folks a 'gentle reminder'.
State law requires out of state vehicles domiciled in CT be registered in 90 days. Even leased vehicles. Proper registration would inform the Assessor. Problem solved. I see lots of out of state tags in my neighborhood for vehicles that came in during the COVID frenzy. Also quite a number of Vermont tags.
CT becoming a state of 'forced charity'. Folks can't afford rent - state gives them vouchers. Folks can't afford utilities - not only does the state help but the utilities are forced into not cutting off non-payers. Cut off the cell service and watch what happens. As for me I'm no longer donating to charities as my charity money is paying bills.
