2019 Town-Wide Reappraisal

Appraisal Process

NEMRC has completed a reappraisal of all real property in Middlebury as of April 1, 2019.  Over the past two years we have inspected the properties and entered the information into a computer assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) system.  Many changes in property values have occurred since the previous reappraisal, and many properties have undergone substantial physical changes.

Please consider your appraisal to be at current market levels.  Previous assessments are statutorily required for reporting, but have no bearing on the current assessments.  Current Use values and Veterans exemptions are not included in the listing.

The tax rate will be set after the completion of formal hearings and after the State finalizes the statewide rates.  Do not equate a change in assessment with a change in tax amounts.

Every effort has been made to equitably assess property in Middlebury.  Please compare your property with similar properties, and with properties that have sold over the past three years.

Official Notice of Change of Appraisal booklets were mailed out to Middlebury property owners the week of June 3rd.  If you were a Middlebury property-owner-of-record as of April 1, 2019 and did not receive a booklet, please contact the Middlebury Assessor's Office as soon as possible at 802-388-8100 x 250.  If you purchased property after April 1, 2019, extra copies of the reappraisal booklet are available in the Town Manager's Office at 77 Main Street.

An electronic copy of the appraisal booklet and other appraisal-related information can be found in the links below.
