§ 4001. Inventory forms
(a) Annually on April 1, at the expense of the state, the director shall furnish to the several town clerks and boards of appraisers for unorganized towns and gores inventory forms sufficient in number to meet the requirements of this chapter. Such forms shall be formulated by the director, and, among other things, shall contain suitable interrogatories requiring each taxpayer to furnish therein a brief statement of all of each taxpayer's taxable property, real and personal, and such other information, including income and expense information with respect to any income-producing properties, as will enable the listers or appraisers to appraise such part thereof as is required by law to be by them appraised, and to make up the abstract of individual lists and grand list in the manner prescribed by law.
(b) The director shall include in the blank inventories furnished pursuant to subsection (a) of this section sufficient space for describing the personal property of the taxpayer. This information may be furnished by schedules to be attached to the inventories.
(c) Listers shall obtain detailed inventory information respecting real and personal property only in such cases as in their judgment is necessary to ascertain the fair market value of property that is subject to an appraisal or reappraisal.
