Big increase in statewide property tax projected

By  | 

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) Property taxes are heading up.

Thursday, the Scott administration projected the state will need to raise the education property tax rate by 9 cents next year.

The hike could force homeowners to shell out hundreds more in support of local schools.

But it's not a done deal yet. The administration and lawmakers can work to lower the rate of increase during the upcoming legislative session.
