As of today (Friday, May 20, 2022) the City of Winooski has completed an abstract of our 2022 Municipal Grand List. Change of appraisal notices will be sent out to advise property owners that completed permitted work (such as additions, deck, garage) or other improvements that increase the value of their property. Only those few properties will receive a change in assessment notice. The municipal grand list is the value used to raise municipal taxes and includes any personal property taxable at the local level and excludes locally voted exemptions.
As part of this process, the City of Winooski is required to host a grievance meeting for those interested in appealing changes to their assessed value (see the Vermont State Statute below).
If you are interested in filing a grievance, please submit a letter to the City Clerk’s Office (27 West Allen St.) in writing prior to June 6, 2022 to request a hearing for the change of assessment, followed by a call or email to schedule your grievance appointment: 802 655 6410 / firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, grievances are related to the valuation of your property, not the amount of property taxes.
Appointments will take place on Monday, June 6, 2022, at Winooski City Hall (27 West Allen St) from 8 AM – 12 PM.
Questions? Call or email the City Clerk’s Office: 802 655 6410 / email@example.com.
Per 32 V.S.A. 4111(g) - A person who feels aggrieved by the action of the listers and desires to be heard by them shall, on or before the day of the grievance meeting, file with them his or her objections in writing and may appear at such grievance meeting in person or by his or her agents or attorneys. No grievance shall be allowed for a change solely to reflect a new use value set by the current use advisory board or the adjustment of that value by the common level of appraisal. Upon the hearing of such grievance, the parties thereto may submit such documentary or sworn evidence as shall be pertinent thereto.
