VT Edition: Current Use

Print More

In 1978 the Vermont Legislature passed the Use Value Appraisal Program, known commonly as "Current Use," a law that sets property taxes based on how the landowner uses the land, rather than its development value. This week lawmakers are voting on controversial changes that could save the program $1.6 million. VPR’s Steve Zind talks about the proposed changes and the role of Current Use in Vermont’s economy with Rep. Allison Clarkson and Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Jonathan Wood.
