Town of Castleton, Vermont


Townwide Property Reassessment

The Town of Castleton has hired Tyler Technologies to conduct the townwide reappraisal project. This means that all property appraised values will be adjusted to an estimated market value in accordance with Vermont laws.

Property owners may be visited by a Tyler appraiser or Tyler data collector beginning June 2024. They will be making their way through each neighborhood, visiting the more than 2,400 properties, verifying measurements of buildings, taking a photo of the front of each building, and correcting property data when needed. Data collectors may also ask residents/occupants questions about the property as it relates to property value. The purpose is to collect accurate information which will be applied to market calibrated tables. The intent is to produce accurate property valuations. Data collection will continue until early 2025.

In addition to the data collection from the field, each property owner will receive a Data Mailer with the property information of their property. Property owners should receive Data Mailers in 2024.

Please review your Data Mailer and check for errors. If an error is found, simply, make the change on the Data Mailer, and return it to the Assessor’s office. Accurate information ensures the most accurate value for your property.

Once all property information is collected and corrections have been made to the property data, Tyler Technologies will analyze the data and calibrate the property data to a preliminary market value. In early 2025, property owners will receive their preliminary appraised values notice by mail. The letter will provide instruction for review and how to schedule an informal meeting with Tyler appraisers. The details of the property will be posted on the Assessor’s website.

For more information, please download our frequently asked questions (FAQ) document and check back here for updates as the project progresses. Key dates, as well as pictures of the data collectors, will be uploaded to this website. If you have questions about when a data collector is in your area, please feel free to contact the town of Castleton Assessors Office at 802.468.5319 ext. 209 or [email protected].
