According to a survey by WalletHub, there are only two states in the United States that rank in the top 10 in two key tax categories, real estate and vehicles, and Connecticut is one of them. WalletHub stated that the average car tax bill in Connecticut is more than $600 and the average real estate or home property tax bill in the state is over $3,000.
Rhode Island, officially the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, also ranked in the top 10 in both real estate and vehicles categories. Rob Kane, Republican member of the Connecticut Senate, said that the high taxes prove that the state has more state services than it should.
