I called up the Alton Tax Collector and got the rates.

So that is how it compares. Biggest drop, 16 cents is the school portion. The retirement of the Prospect Mountain School building bond reduced a total of 68 cents. Those of you who can remember that far back may recall that in February-March of this year we had quite a few brouhahas about that number because the ACS SAU kept on factoring that reduction in when stating what the new bond would cost us. Read this post and check the newspaper article referenced. So, the school budget did go up, by $0.52 I guess. The -$0.68 help offset it and keep it to -$0.16.

Tax bills will not be mailed until Thursday or Friday of next week, i.e., November 14 or 15, 2013.

Gilmanton tax rate dropped 9.7% from last year. So, if you were looking for a comparison.


Alton, N.H. 2013 – 2014 NEW Property Tax Rate Is Supposedly $13.44 vs. $13.68 Last Year.

clairvoyantThis is per a comment posted against my last post. I cannot vouch for its veracity.

I can only ONLY go by what is PUBLISHED on the State Website. And as I clearly stated,  I checked at 4:50 pm, and included a screenshot, Alton did NOT appear in the list.

I also JUST checked the Town Website. Can’t find rate on it.

Suffice to say the Town hasn’t told me anything though they know that I visited the Town Hall twice and made two phone calls asking for the rate.

So, I do not in any way feel bad that I did NOT know the rate — as a comment indicates.

I have, despite my manifold talents, never claimed to be clairvoyant. You can go check.

IF I can get it confirmed I will let you know.

On October 23 I was told ‘next week’.

Yesterday was ‘next week’. Town Hall was open for Halloween — which in its self was scary. I also wanted to get out of the rain. So, I went to see the Tax Collector and told her to SCARE ME. She didn’t get it. I had to explain. Scare me by giving me the new TAX RATE.

She tells me she doesn’t have it! What can I say.

Said I would get my bill on November 12. I goofed, because I was surprised (and also soaked from the rain). Didn’t clarify whether that was when they were being mailed or when they would appear in my mailbox. Not that it matters much. We are probably talking 2 days, max., given that it is local.

So, if we work off November 12, payments will not be due till December 12.

I just checked. That would be EARLY. Last year it was 12/17. Year before 12/27.

I guess it was because I was told, way back in July, that this year it was going to be ‘early’.

I will keep you posted, IF I get any new information.

Alton, NH Will Not Be Setting 2013 – 2014 Property Tax Rate Till NEXT Week, Unlikely That Payment Will Be Due On December 1, 2013.

I happened to be in Town yesterday, viz. October 23, and stopped by the Town Hall to ask what the story was about 2013-204 Property Tax rate.

I was told, by the Tax Collectors Office (though the Tax Collector per se was not there) that the rate will not be set till next week and that it will take them approximately a week to get the bills out.

We then have 30 days to pay the dreaded bill.

And, yes, she admitted that it was unlikely that they would be asking for payment on December 1, 2013 — though she was also VERY QUICK to point out that that was NOT a problem for Alton and that the Town would not have to borrow any money to pay whatever they have to pay in the first few days of Alton. That is good. So that is the story from a horse’s mouth.
