Are there any websites that list property taxes and house appraisals in VT? Trying to gather up some information before we buy a house, hopefully next year or early 2009. Any tips for buying a house in VT? Thanks!

I think this list is even more instructive. It shows that Vermont is the worst tax state in the nation!

It makes me sad because I would dearly love to retire in VT, but there's no way I can afford the astronomical property taxes.

Don't take all tax articles at their headline value.

Your tax rate depends on your income, property value, township residence, deductions, and many other factors.
The generalized articles regarding tax rates apply to a stereotypical model and the variance is huge.

Remember, the first mission of a magazine publisher is to sell magazines. And inducing panic, terror, or hysteria is the best way to sell.

If it bleeds, it leads. That is the algore method of globalonely warming propaganda, and so far it's garnered him a Nobel Prize.

The Times Argus agrees with you and asks the governor to heed:

The governor actually brings up valid points and just by not discussing the issue and living in denial over poor economic policies and existing demographic facts and trends will never lead to improvement. Act 60/68 really needs to be revisited and scrutinized at the risk of upsetting the original designers and die hard proponents. The latest arguments trying to offset population loss and out migration in the Argus article are pretty weak.

???????????????????????????????

Welcome tax is 1% of sale price. Ask your realtor what the taxes are.

The governor announced yesterday that the state was reducing school aid to towns next year by 36 million. Do you think they will reduce the school budgets accordingly or raise property taxes to cover the shortfall?
