Updated for 2019. MAC recommends that town officials should provide information to taxpayers that explains the process for grieving a tax assessment. Many taxpayers appeal their assessments because they do not understand the system or think that they have been singled out. Providing information to those taxpayers can help demystify the process and assure taxpayers that they will be treated objectively and fairly. The VLCT Model Informational Handout for BCA Hearings can be used for this purpose.
If you have additional questions or are interested in MAC training, drafting, or review services please contact the staff at the VLCT Municipal Assistance Center. Members can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-649-7915.
While every effort is made to provide members with the most accurate information possible, this information does not constitute legal advice.
