Hi Marianne,

 

As we see it, “Person” is defined in 1 V.S.A. 128 to include a corporations or any “other legal entity”:

 

128. Person

"Person" shall include any natural person, corporation, municipality, the state of Vermont or any department, agency or subdivision of the state, and any partnership, unincorporated association or other legal entity.

 

You could also check with VT Dept of Taxes Property Valuation Division for advice.

Anyone

The BofA abatement criteria mostly refer to taxes of "persons"...  What if it is a defunct corporation that dissolved owing property taxes.  The entity no longer exists.  A tax exempt entity wants to buy the property but wants the prior delinquent taxes abated.  What to do?
