Helpful Resources

Property Tax Credit Claim: Property owners may be eligible for a Property Tax Credit based their household income from the prior calendar year. The credit is applied against the current year’s property tax bill, indicated as a “state payment.” Credit claims can be filed after the April deadline for Homestead Declarations. These materials are available in other languages in addition to English.

Vermont School District Codes: Though not required on a tax bill, it is helpful if the tax bill or other enclosed billing information, reminds taxpayers of the need to retain the tax bill for future reference. Most municipalities and cities are also printing the 3-digit school district code number on the bill.

About Education Tax Rates: Detailed information on how the education tax rates were calculated typically appears on the tax bill.
