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.
Just because I have multiple cars registered in multiple states does not automatically mean I am a tax cheat. As for 100k being easy to hire someone, I would like you to think about the implications of hiring the wrong person. Giving someone "investigative" authority is a dangerous game. The individual would need to be highly vetted and would have to be given clear guidance on what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. Who gives this guidance? Are they allowed on private property if it is not posted? Are they allowed to look into the windows of a private garage? Are they allowed to stake out the schools? Are they allowed to follow people around town, while following someone are they allowed to exceed the speed limit? Are they allowed to record the faces of the people in the car? At what threshold is it considered a violation? There is a reason local police do not provide enforcement. Let's start with the fact that it is not a primary stop. Second, let's look at what Torrington did, they created an ordinance that allowed police to issue a fine for out-of-state cars. The kicker was they considered pima facia evidence being that the car was in Torrington, had out-of-state plates and the address for the car was within the state of Connecticut. Speaking from experience, you can not register a car out of state unless you have an out-of-state address. Of course, I agree with gentle reminders for people to transfer their registration to a new town while not having a residence in another state. We need less government regulations, not more.
