Board of Civil Authority Toolkit

Please note that this page has been updated with information related to tax assessment appeals hearings and the 2023 Flood State of Emergency. 

To help the Board of Civil Authority carry out its property tax assessment appeals statutory duties, we have put together several online resources and trainings (see the Links section on this page). The Board of Civil Authority is subject to Vermont’s Open Meeting Law, so there are links to our extensive Open Meeting Law resources as well. 

Thanks to support from the Vermont Department of Taxes, Property Valuation and Review Division, we provide members with online resources and training, with additional training for towns undergoing property tax reappraisals.
