2 towns refer tax
complaints to state
DERBY — Officials in two Vermont towns are telling residents to take their complaints about the increase of their property tax bills to the state.
Derby Town Clerk Faye Morin says town clerks across the state have had enough phone calls from concerned citizens asking questions about increases, especially of the statewide education property tax.
Derby tax bills are due to go out this month. She said taxpayers will receive a letter from the town saying they should call their representative.
The Caledonian Record reported that in Norton, a letter included with the tax bills told people to take their questions to the state Department of Taxes.
Both communities say the increase is driven by school taxes.MORE IN Vermont NewsThe deaths of two babies in cases of alleged child abuse — and the state’s handling of those...
