We represent property owners and municipalities in tax appeals and valuation disputes involving Vermont real property. On selected matters, we represent taxpayers in disputes with the Vermont Tax Department and/or the Internal Revenue Service. We provide advice about tax-exemption claims.

Examples of our work include:

  • Appearing for owners of commercial, residential and industrial properties in real-estate tax appeals before the Vermont State Appraiser and the Vermont Superior Court;
  • Disputing asset valuations in federal estate tax cases with the IRS;
  • Challenging deductions disallowed by the IRS in estate tax matters;
  • Disputing valuation matters with the Vermont Tax Department;
  • Advising about exemption claims under Vermont tax statutes;
  • Defending valuation decisions by selected municipalities; and
  • Advising taxpayers about compliance agreements to resolve disputes with taxing authorities,
