    eCuse Is Coming This Spring to Your Town

    The electronic application eCuse, for the Current Use Program, is coming to your town this spring. The Vermont Department of Taxes is developing eCuse to bring new efficiencies to the application and review process for all users, including town officials. It will provide assessing officials with the ability to view applications and other documents affecting properties within their towns. eCuse will allow them to see current use applications which have been submitted as well as those that are under review, giving them the ability to track applications and manage their workloads. Once an application is approved, the Department will notify the clerk of the approved applications via email. Providing the Current Use Division with the valuation of the land and buildings will continue through the file exchange with Current Use via the NEMRC module.

     Municipal clerks will be able to access the approved applications, print the documents required for recording, and enter the recording information. At that point, they will notify the Department of Taxes that an application has been recorded and invoice the Department for the recording fee. The new electronic process means there will be less mail to handle, and the process of invoicing the Department for recording fees for approved Current Use Applications will be more efficient.

     For more information about the eCuse municipal service, contact Current Use at 802-828-5860.
