The Tax Collector is responsible for the collection of taxes, including property, current use, timber yield, active pit and excavation taxes. 

The Tax Year runs from April 1 to March 31 of each year.  Property taxation in New Hampshire is a process involving all levels of government, from the voters at town and school district meetings, town selectmen, and local assessing officials, to state legislators and court officials.  It is a yearly process beginning with the preparation of the budget and voting of appropriations, continuing with the assessment of property and the setting of the tax rates, and concluding with the appeal process. 

Property owners are billed on a semi-annual basis.   The first issue bill is mailed by the end of May and is due July 1.  This amount of the first bill is based on the property assessment as of April 1 of the current year, multiplied by the previous year’s tax rate and divided by two.  The second issue bill is based on the property assessment as of April 1 of the current year, multiplied by the tax rate, set by the NH Department of Revenue Administration in the fall of each year, minus the amount paid on the first issue bill.  Because the tax rate is not set until the fall, the amount owed on each of the two tax bills you receive will differ.  The date that the second issue is billed will vary, depending on when the tax rate is set.  The second issue bill is due 30 days from the date the last bill is mailed, but not before December 1 of each year.

Tax bills may be paid at the Town Hall during the Tax Collector’s regularly scheduled hours, mailed or left in the Drop Box outside the entrance to the Town Offices.  The Drop Box is accessible 24 hours a day.  If you mail your payment or leave your payment in the Drop Box, and you want a receipt, you must include your entire tax bill and a self addressed stamped envelope with your payment and your receipt will be mailed to you.  Payment may be made in the form of cash or check.  For your protection we do not recommend mailing cash or leaving cash in the Drop Box.
