Flood-Related Damage and Property Tax Abatement

Individuals whose property was impacted by the flooding may be eligible for an abatement of their education and municipal property taxes, water and sewer charges, and certain fees. Individuals will need to contact their municipality to request an abatement.

Municipalities, learn more about the criteria for abatement and how to apply for reimbursement.


Municipal Officials

The Division of Property Valuation and Review (PVR) staff which includes both office staff and traveling District Advisors provides support to municipalities in developing and administrating property tax policies and related programs at the local level.

PVR supports computer software programs used locally for grand list valuation and property tax administration. We provide Municipal Officials with training, online tools, and a wide variety of information to help ensure property is assessed fairly and equitably.

Our goal is to provide answers to common questions that municipal governments ask to help meet their obligations.

We are partnering with Vermont Center for Geographic Information (VCGI) to carry out a Statewide Parcel Mapping Program. Visit VCGI to learn more about the program.
