Property Valuation and Review

Programs that are primarily administered by municipal governments are supported by the Division of Property Valuation and Review. We work extensively with local governments in the performance of their duties. The primary responsibility of the lister is to determine the fair market value of your property; all real property commonly known as real estate is assessed. Real property is defined as land and any permanent structures attached to it. This value is converted into an assessment, which is one component in the computation of real property tax bills. In order to accomplish this goal, listers must understand appraisal methods and property assessment administration in Vermont.

Here are some of the specific technical support tools and additional information we provide for listers, assessors, and property owners.
