Listers are unique to Vermont. They are elected officials who are responsible for the valuation of all real property values in town. One lister is elected each year to serve a 3-year term. Due to the size of the town, Hartford also has a full-time assessor, who assists the Board of Listers and oversees the daily operation of the office as well as a records specialist..

Responsibilities of the Office
Our primary responsibility is to appraise and assess all real property in town in compliance with applicable Vermont State Statutes. In most instances, this will be fair market value. This includes annual maintenance such as updating changes resulting from building permits, structural changes or improvements to the property, as well as periodic revaluations.
In addition, the office provides
Assessment history information
Detailed explanation of the assessment process
Property Record Cards
Tax maps, which are periodically updated to correspond with survey changes
Tax Map Discrepancies
Should there be a discrepancy between our acreage and what you believe you actually own, we will need a recorded survey prior to changing our records. We do want to stress that the tax maps are an approximation of property lines used for listing purposes only. They are not considered a legal document and cannot be used to determine actual boundaries.
The 2016 Assessments/Vision (Property Cards and Tax Maps) are available online and at the town office.
