Property Tax Bills
Property tax bills will be issued in July to the property owners of record as of April 1. If you purchase a property after April 1, you should request the tax bill from the seller or contact this office for a copy.
The payment dates for the current 2018-2019 tax bill were voted to be August 17, 2018 and February 15, 2019. Postmarks by the U.S. Post Office are accepted.
FILING HOMESTEAD DECLARATIONS ANNUALLY ONCE AGAIN BECAME MANDATORY IN 2013. IF YOU ARE A VERMONT RESIDENT AND OWN AND OCCUPY A VERMONT DWELLING AS YOUR PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE ON APRIL 1, YOU MUST FILE A HOMESTEAD DECLARATION, FORM HS-122, BY APRIL (FEDERAL) TAX DAY OF THAT YEAR. THE PENALTY FOR LATE FILING IS 8% OF THE EDUCATION TAXES.
To assist in explaining how to read a property tax bill, the Vermont Department of Taxes has created THIS GUIDE with brief explanations. A more in-depth explanation of how statewide education property taxes are calculated can be found in FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
