I have not yet filed my Federal Tax Return for last year, can I complete the I & E without it?

The data contained on the I &E is related to, but different than a Federal Tax Return, you still have to file your I & E on time, regardless of the filing status of your Federal Tax Return.

I told you my property was owner occupied last year, do I have to do this every year?

Yes. From year to year, the Town of Manchester does not know which properties revert from being owner occupied to being tenant occupied, so all properties that receive the I & E or meet the qualifications for submitting one (commercial or 5+ unit residential), must do so each year.

The rental data regarding my property has not changed since last year, do I still have to file?

Yes.  You must file an I&E every year, regardless of whether or not the rental or expense data for your property has changed. Also, you must complete the sections on the form that pertain to your property. Writing "no change" or similar will result in a 10% penalty for incomplete filing

Can I file online?

We have a fillable PDF or you can print the PDF and complete manually. Your completed I&E form can be emailed to us at The PDF form is available below. We will email a "received" reply as time permits, but it will not be immediate. If you do not receive a reply, do not assume we received it. 

Why does the town need this information?

The Annual Income and Expense Report you are being asked to complete is used in assisting the Town of Manchester in developing the Income Approach.  (There are three approaches to value used by appraisers and assessors to value real estate: 1) the Cost Approach, 2) the Sales Comparison Approach, and 3) the Income Approach.)

The Annual Income and Expense Reports provide valuable data that is collected, tabulated and used to determine market rental rates, market vacancy rates, and typical stabilized operating expenses.  After the general market parameters are established, each property is then compared to the market to determine that property’s performance relative to the market, and the Income Approach is developed. We track these real estate market trends so that when our revaluation year comes around (every 5 years, the last one was 2021), we have the tools and data to accurately value properties in our municipality.

Because the information contained on the Annual Income and Expense Reports is both vital and required by statute (CGS 12-63c), the Town of Manchester asks that you complete the document each year.
