Montpelier problems of local taxation in Vermont lie deeper than town listers says tax commissioner Gerald s. Witherspoon who suggests that some problems can Only be solved by legislative action. Witherspoon reviews his ideas in a mimeographed statement addressed primarily to the editor of the Rutland Herald and distributed with the latest Issue of a tax aids a published monthly by the state tax department. Vermont towns the commissioner says fall into three general categories a i. A number of towns including some of the largest have recently undergone Complete reappraisal of taxable properties by outside appraisers or Well trained local listers. Although the grand lists of these towns May still contain imperfections for ours in an imperfect world the Over All results Are highly satisfactory. �?o2. A second group of towns have grand lists which Are basically sound but they reflect pro Perty values which prevailed a decade or two ago. If All property had increased in value at a uniform rate in recent years this problem would not be too serious. Unfortunately land values in Many towns Are rising More rapidly than building values. Moreover recently improved or transferred properties Are usually listed at current prices. Each year therefore these grand lists become More distorted and vulnerable to taxpayer appeals. �?o3. The grand lists of our remaining towns Are in serious disarray. Over the years they have developed into a Potpourri of negotiated settlements and random decisions seasoned with a generous dash of Folk Justice. Seldom however Are the listers primarily to blame. The overwhelming majority of our Vermont listers Are conscientious hardworking and underpaid. Witherspoon says he issued e.
