Listers

I

n Vermont, the job of the elected listers in each town is to prepare and maintain the town’s Grand List. The Grand List is the collection of all assessed real property values within the town. The assessed value of each parcel of real property forms the basis for property taxes. 

Throughout the year the listers work to keep up with changes in property ownership, homestead declarations, Current Use enrollment,  and changes in legislation from the State of Vermont that govern how property is valued.

Listers are required to assess all real property at 100% of fair market value. In Vermont the legislature has defined fair market value as: “…the price that the property will bring in the market when offered for sale and purchased by another, taking into consideration all the elements of the availability of the property, its use both potential and prospective, any functional deficiencies, and all other elements such as age and condition that combine to give property a market value. …In determining estimated fair market value, the sale price of the property in question is one element to consider, but is not solely determinative.” 32 V.S.A. § 3481

Braintree has three elected listers who serve staggered three year terms. The current board of listers is: Jackson Evans (term expires March of 2024) Grace Persons (term expires March of 2026) and Luke Fisher (term expires March of 2025).

The listers are here to serve community. If you have any questions about the role of the listers in Braintree or about your property in particular, please do not hesitate to call, email or stop in the office.
