While working on town and education budgets for the upcoming fiscal year at a recent meeting, members of the Wilton Board of Finance also reviewed revenue generated from the town’s top taxpayers.

“It’s interesting. Just 10 taxpayers pay 10% of Wilton’s grand list,” said Jeff Rutishauser, chairman of the finance board. “Stability and growth of the grand list is one component we use to deal with the budget and setting the mill rate,” he said.

The town’s largest taxpayer, Connecticut Light & Power Company (now Eversource), has 2.13% of the town’s net taxable assessed grand list for 2017 with $90,902,190 in taxable assessed value.

“Taxpayers are not necessarily a single property,” Rutishauser said.

CL&P’s tax assessment covers properties on Route 7 that house large high-power tension towers for electricity distribution. These are new towers which replaced older ones, adding capacity to the main trunk of power coming from the Norwalk station, Rutishauser explained.

He said CL&P’s taxpayer rank has increased significantly in the past 10 years. In 2008, it ranked fifth with $23,581,050 taxable assessed value, and a 0.62% share of the net taxable assessed grand list.

“The new towers are more valuable than the ones that were taken down and are taxable,” Rutishauser said.

The second highest taxpayer is Wilton 40,50,60, et al, which owns a series of midrise office buildings. It has 2.02% of the net taxable assessed grand list, with $86,763,790 in taxable assessed value.

The number three taxpayer, TIAA-CREF, owns two offices in Wilton. It has 1.88% of the net taxable assessed grand list, with $80,452,680 in taxable assessed value.

Kimco Realty, which owns Wilton River Park, the plaza with Stop & Shop, is the number four taxpayer. It has 1% of the net taxable assessed grand list, with $42,984,510 in taxable assessed value.

Avalon Properties which owns a number of residential properties, is the number five taxpayer. It has 0.80% of the net taxable assessed grand list, with $34,304,410 in taxable assessed value.

Ranking sixth, semiconductor company ASML US Inc. owns property with $27,883,826 in taxable assessed value, 0.63% of the net taxable assessed grand list.

Wilton Meadows Retirement, et al, which provides senior housing and services, comes in seventh on the list with $23,584,460 in taxable assessed value, 0.55% of the net taxable assessed grand list.

Norwalk Second Taxing District, which owns land around the reservoirs, comes in eighth with $16,094,750 in taxable assessed value, 0.37% of the net taxable assessed grand list.

Bridgewater Associates, which owns office buildings, comes in ninth with $14,899,730 in taxable assessed value, 0.35% of the net taxable assessed grand list.

Property management company, MCL Ventures et al, rounds off the list at number 10, with $14,672,570 in taxable assessed value, 0.33% of the net taxable assessed grand list.
