Well, you live in Waterbury, pay taxes in Waterbury, and you work in…. Naugatuck. Maybe you’ve just started working in the area, or perhaps you’ve been a constant presence on your job for the past 10, 15, maybe even 20 years or longer. Depending on where you currently live in Waterbury, a move to Naugatuck just might make sense because
- The taxes are lower. Compare a tax mill rate of 31.52 vs. 39.92 for the two areas.
- Avoiding that annoying rush-hour traffic and shortening the time it takes to get back and forth to work. Need I say any more?
- If you happen to work beyond Naugatuck, especially in any of the Valley towns (Ansonia, Derby, Shelton, Oxford, Seymour), then #2 becomes doubly important, especially during those terrible winter months.
- A better (arguably) selection of restaurants (to be featured in future blog posts), for those who like to take the time to eat out and enjoy a night with family and/or friends.
