I know that taxes “follow the property” so I would assume that the ability to request abatement would also. Title 24 VSA 1536 covers abatements; there are specific reasons to allow abatements. I don’t believe tearing down a building is one of them.

Subject: Tax Abatement


Can the purchaser of property request a tax abatement on property they purchased after April 1st, or does the owner of record as of April 1st need to request the tax abatement?  New owner is tearing down a building and is seeking a tax abatement but can they since their name is not on the tax bill?
