Ben Barnes, Malloy's budget director, told municipal leaders Wednesday it's impractical to mandate that municipalities accept pre-payments because communities have not yet set tax rates for the new fiscal year, which begins July 1Also, he says property tax collection is a local, not a state, matter. New York's and New Jersey's governors signed orders requiring municipalities to accept pre-paid local taxes before a $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions goes into effect next year.
