The Town of Putney, by policy, mail residential property tax bills to property owners in early July and the first payment would be due in 30 days. That is not the case this year as the state has not set the “educational tax rate” as of July 13, 2019 for the Town of Putney. This rate is generated by the State of Vermont once a school budget has passed. School mergers have delayed the process of passing budgets in a timely period. The school budget did pass on June 25, 2019, which began the 30 day period for appeal. The Town of Putney will not see an educational tax rate until at least July 26, 2019. Our office will process property tax bills as soon as possible once we have a confirmed educational tax rate from the state. The first tax payment will be delayed from our normal third Friday of the month to approximately August 30, 2019. This is the best our office can do at this time to inform you.
Any questions please contact our office at 387.5862 extension 11 or 12.
