RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE OFFICE
 Our primary responsibility is to 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
  • Explanation of the assessment process
  • Property Record Cards
  • Tax maps, which are updated annually (As of April 1st)  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. 

FY2021 Education Property Tax Rate is available on PVR (Property Valuation and Review) website as well as Prior Year Rates:
