MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov. Phil Scott says the state will need to raise property taxes next year to support education.
WCAX-TV reports the Scott administration has projected Vermont will need to raise its education property tax rate by 9 cents. The increase could translate to hundreds more in taxes for homeowners.
