Property TaxDespite a decrease in Vermont's student enrollment in recent years, both commercial property taxes (5%) and residential property taxes (4%) continue to increase. NFIB will continue to fight to reverse this trend.
Employer AssessmentDespite the shutdown of Vermont Health Connect to employers in September 2014, the state continues to require employers to pay a quarterly tax payment; the first 4 full-time equivalent employees are exempt from the tax. The $18 million that is generated annually from this tax is essentially paying to operate a program that no longer exists. NFIB continues to vigorously calling for the repeal of this tax.
