I agree that is a problem…the adjustments go on forever.

I wonder what the bigger issue is on the town side—I know for us it isn’t the annual filing, it’s the wicked late deadline

Lets just hope that there is plenty of good CLEAR information put out there for the taxpayer.

The changes the treasurers primarily wanted was the ability to legally communicate with escrow companies, lawyers and abstractors, and those with power of attorney about balances due and other tax bill information, in light of the VT Supreme Court decision.  Going back to annual filing of the homestead is a pain, but let’s just hope it stays this way and they don’t change it again!

A friend of mine in the legislature (who voted against this) said that they were told the treasurers asked for this change

Just an FYI, The Miscellaneous local tax changes bill (H.782, Act 143) was passed which requires everyone to go back to annual filing of homestead declarations.

 

They also changed the date for late filings from September 1 to October 15th.

 

How confusing is that going to be?
