Assessment

The Assessing Department assesses all real property in the City of Barre. The Assessor’s office prepares and files the Grand List and maintains the individual assessment records for all recorded parcels in Barre City. The office also maintains maps indicating the location of properties in the City. Property Transfer Returns and field inspections are used to update the assessment records on a regular basis.

NOTICE TO TAXPAYERS 

Agreeably to the provisions of Title 32, Vermont State Statutes Annotated, Section 4111, notice is hereby given that the undersigned Assessor within and for the City of Barre has this day completed the abstract of property owners as of the twenty-fourth day of June, 2024.  The Assessor has this same day lodged the abstract in the office of the clerk for the inspection of taxpayers.

Beginning WEDNESDAY, JULY 10, 2024 AT 8:30 AM, the undersigned assessor will meet at City Hall, to hear appeals of the taxpayers aggrieved by actions of the assessor from whom timely grievances have been received.  To be timely, such grievance must be in writing and received (postmarks not accepted) by TUESDAY, JULY 9, 2024 AT 4:00 PM.  At the close of grievance hearings, the Assessor shall make such corrections in the abstract as were determined upon hearing or otherwise. Unless cause to the contrary is shown, the contents of said abstract will, for the tax year 2025, become the grand list of the city of each taxpayer named therein.  You must decide whether you want a hearing with the Assessors, taking approximately 15 minutes to go through your grievance package, or if you want your written documentation to serve as the hearing. Should you desire a hearing, please call Kathryn at (802) 476-0244 to schedule a grievance time.                                            

Larry Martin, Assessor
Carly Martin, Asst. Assessor

 

NOTICE OF LODGING OF ABSTRACT GRAND LIST

Vermont Law requires that the Assessor annually post a notice when the Abstract (Preliminary) Grand List is lodged with the City Clerk. On the same day, State Law requires that an individual notice of any Change in Appraisal be mailed to all property owners whose value has been changed.

Assessment changes are made annually for building improvements, additions, removal of buildings, subdivisions of land, etc.

HOW TO APPEAL YOUR ASSESSMENT

32 V.S.A. §4111(g) reads as follows:

A person who feels aggrieved by the action of the Assessor and desires to be heard by them, shall, on or before the day of the grievance meeting, file with them his objections in writing and may appear at such grievance meeting in person or by his agents or attorneys. Upon the hearing of such grievance the parties thereto may submit such documentary or sworn evidence as shall be pertinent thereto.

Grievances for the 2025 tax year must be submitted in writing, and received at the City offices no later than TUESDAY, JULY 9, 2024 by 4:00 PM via email to Assessor@barrecity.org, or by written letter received by this same date.  Grievances received after 4:00 pm Wednesday July 9, 2024 will be considered LATE and will not be used for this year.  We recommend using this 2024 GRIEVANCE FORM, but it is not mandatory.  After the 2024 grievance period, you can grieve any time by submitting a letter and documentation that we will keep on file, but it will not be reviewed or considered until next April 2025.
