The Town of Manchester is pleased to announce a full-featured online GIS presence for its parcel, zoning, and tax maps. Information available includes overall zoning maps, overall and individual parcel maps, individual parcel data, and other useful information such as zoning districts, flood hazard overlays, and aerial photos. The site was created by Main Street GIS, and is available online at http://www.mainstreetmaps.com/VT/Manchester/. This project was done as a collaborative effort between the Town's Planning and Assessing departments.
The Assessing Office and the Board of Listers work collboratively to establish the value of all properties, for taxation purposes, located in the Town of Manchester. The Assessing Office and Board of Listers do not set the tax rate or collect taxes. The municipal tax rate is set by the Selectboard based on the budget approved by Town Meeting and the Grand List approved by the Board of Listers. The Grand List is, essentially, a list of all properties and associated values. Taxes are collected by the tax collector, who is the Town Manager in Manchester.
