From: Sharon Bonaparte-Diop

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

This correspondence is a formal request for a copy of your county's "excess funds list", which I believe is maintained by your department . In case of any confusion, by "excess funds" I mean monies collected when a property is sold at tax sale which are over and above the amount of property taxes/penalties and interest owed. I am only looking for uncollected excess funds on unredeemed properties.
The information I would like is the date of the tax sale, name of owner at the time of the tax sale, the tax identification number (sometimes called "Parcel Number" or Parcel Identifier" or Folio Number"), either the property address or owner's mailing address, and the amount of surplus funds due the owner. If you have some portions of the above information available I am interested in what you do have available.
If you have these records in electronic format such as PDF, Excel of CSV files, I'd prefer the information that way. Otherwise, please let me know how much a hard copy of your list will be, and where and to whom to mail payment for a hard copy.
If you do not maintain a list of excess funds, any advice on how I could collect that information from existing files you have would be very much appreciated...!!!
If I have reached the wrong department, I would very much appreciate this email/correspondence being forwarded to the correct department, with a carbon copy sent to me.
If there is anything I can do to aid or expedite the process, please let me know, as I'm eager to do whatever I can to make your job easier.

Thank you in advance,

Sharon Bonaparte

I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. ยง 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain. The requested documents will be processed by a representative of the news media/press and made available to the public at MuckRock.com.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.

Good morning,

I have spoken to the Collector of Revenue who oversees tax sales of
delinquent properties. The attorney who runs the tax sale, has set up a
