Assessor's Office

At this time, the Assessor's Office is composed of one person, Cristina Tardie, Assistant Assessor. You can email staff directly at ctardie@hartford-vt.org
 
Chris Landin is our contracted appraiser for permits and sales inspections and he will continue to inspect properties (exterior only) with future appointments for interior inspections.

As a COVID-19 safety precaution, Town of Hartford staff members are currently working remotely. Addressing residents’ concerns and questions remains a high priority. We appreciate your patience as we adapt to virtual communications.

Most of our data is available online – see Assessor Resources and BEACON SCHNEIDER CORP website for property information, sales and Tax Maps: https://beacon.schneidercorp.com/Application.aspx?AppID=1050&LayerID=23939&PageTypeID=2&PageID=9962

We hope the Assessor’s Position will be filled in soon. In the mean time, stay safe and wash your hands!

Cristina Tardie,Assistant Assessor



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
  • Specialized reports
  • 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.
