MAC recommends that every board of civil authority (BCA) should adopt and follow written rules of procedure for conducting tax assessment appeal hearings. Rules of procedure can be helpful to both town officials and taxpayers. They provide a script for hearings, instruct the BCA, and inform taxpayers about what to expect. They also help provide consistency throughout the hearing process.
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.
