The elected Listers serve the function of assessing with equity the value of property held within the Town of Barnet. With this goal in mind they annually create a Grand List, which is a detailed listing of properties based upon which property tax is levied. Assessment equity is generally determined by the degree to which assessments bear a consistent relationship to market value. Through the Grievance process property owners may exercise their right to appeal the assessment of the Listers.
