At this time, only residential properties and condominiums have been reassessed. New assessments for commercial properties have been delayed and no date has been given for South Burlington commercial tax assessments.
Some residential property owners in South Burlington have been shocked by new assessments. This is due to the combination of an unusually active real estate market and an above-average gap since the last round of assessments in 2006. In most cases, the new assessments in South Burlington represent fair market value, but mistakes occur during the assessment process and assessors may not consider all of the factors that impact the value of a property.
