Tax Assesment Appeals and Denial of Zoning Application

Town of Glastonbury

Two tax appeals were filed by land developer, John Sakon. Following a three day trial and submission of post-trial briefs, the Court determined that Mr. Sakon failed to establish aggrievement (which, for tax appeal purposes requires proof of overassessment) in his § 12-117a appeal and, in his § 12-119 appeal, failed to prove that the assessor had illegally applied the statutes pertaining to assessment, or that the Town’s zoning regulations and denial of a zoning application constituted an illegal taking of his property.
