News & Announcements

Property Tax Bills Delayed:
Due to the long process of completing the 5-year reappraisal cycle and grievance hearings, and then waiting to receive the education rate from the state (the education rate could not be calculated until the grievance process was completed, and as of Monday, August 15, the town still does not have the education rate), property tax bills are delayed and HAVE NOT been mailed yet.

Please note: the first property tax due date in September will be later than the voter approved date of September 15th. VT statute requires that property tax bills are to be mailed at least thirty days prior to the first due date, so that first payment WILL NOT BE DUE until at least 30 days from the mailing date. The September due date is the only due date that will be changed. The three other due dates in November, February, and May will remain the same: the 15th of the month, as approved by voters at Town Meeting 2016.  If you have had a change of address, please contact the office! We always have numerous tax bills returned each year that were unable to be forwarded by the USPS.

Welcome to the Town of Bolton, Vermont


Town of BoltonWelcome to the Bolton, Vermont website.

The town of Bolton is located in the western foothills of the Green Mountains, on the eastern edge of the Lake Champlain Valley. The Winooski River bisects the town from east to west, as does Interstate 89, the New England Central Railway and U.S. Route 2.  Chartered in June 1763, Bolton is a small rural municipality that prides itself on many unique aspects: we are a tight-knit community with acres of forested land bisected by recreational trails, majestic ridge lines, rugged rocky outcrops, and valley-bottom cropland, all tucked in between working landscapes and our beloved Green Mountains.
