Welcome to Open Connecticut!

We all pay taxes – but do you follow where tax dollars come from and where they go?

Open Connecticut centralizes state financial information to make it easier to follow state dollars. Find out where deficits or surpluses come from. Find out how much was paid for a particular vendor or program. Find out what to expect in future years.

It’s your money. You have a right to know.
