Board of Listers

The primary responsibility of the Board of Listers is to maintain and defend the Grand List for the Town of Northfield. To that end, the three (3) elected Listers must place a value on (assess) any and all improvements made to the roughly 2,000 parcels in Northfield. In the spring of each year, the Listers visit (perform field checks on) all of the parcels that have received permits from the Zoning Administrator. They must identify the level of completion of all the projects and establish a value for the improvement as of April 1 of that year. If a project is not completed by April 1, the Listers must then return to the parcel each following year until the project is completed. The Listers also perform Field Checks on parcel improvements, which they observe during the year and for which no permit has been issued. The Board of Listers has several responsibilities beyond that of the annual assessment process; they also are involved in exemptions, parcel inquiries, property transfers and tax mapping.
If you need to speak directly to a Lister or obtain a copy of a Lister Card, please call to arrange for an appointment. There also is a "Request for Parcel Information" form available at the Town Clerk's Office.
