New Hampshire property tax rates Anura Guruge

For 2015 – 2016 I am JUST going to do this ONE post and update it as more and more towns report.

Previous years I did a post each time there was a fresh batch of data. Given that people find these posts, in the main, via search engines they would invariably end up at an out-of-date post.

Hence this approach. So ideally anybody and everybody looking for 2015 – 2016 New Hampshire property tax information will always end up at this post. OK? Clear? Thanks.

As of December 12, 2015, 238 towns have published their 2015 – 2016 Property Tax Rates. (As always I have excluded the (exotic) N.H. Townships, Grants, Locations, and Purchases, e.g., Bean’s Grant, Bean’s Purchase, Cambridge, Atkinson and Gilmanton Academy Grant, Dix’s Grant etc. Wikipedia has a list of all these N.H. ‘exotics’. I exclude them because they typically do not have a bona fide tax.)

I consider 229(+) towns as our ‘full house’. So at 238 is GOOD.

PLEASE note that these property tax rates in isolation are MEANINGLESS unless you also factor in the relative property values of the towns. Please read this post. Click image on right to ENLARGE.

All the data used from the NH Department of Revenue Administration Tax ‘page’.
For 2015 – 2016 they have a new Website. The data provided and the format is a bit different.
They have included a ‘dashboard’ to try and make it easier IF you understand their lingo.

Deanna found this very handy link on her FaceBook page under ‘for sale in Alton’.

The link, which is legit, and from the N.H. Dept. of Revenue Administration ishttp://revenue.nh.gov/forms/low_mod_program.htm

I could not get the PDF to download with Chrome. Not good. But, it worked fine with FireFox.

Worth checking out.

I am sure most folks in Alton (that bother to pay their Property Taxes) will not qualify, BUT this is for the whole state and there will be folks that qualify.

You have till June 30, 2013 to get this done. The PDF can be filled in online on the Web.

Check it out.

Though he is a Republican, I have always found that Ray Burton, our NH Executive Councilor, invariably has a sound, common sense approach to what is good for the people of the State. I have to say that I would concur wholeheartedly with what Ray set forth in the above letter — just adding that the NH ‘Department of Revenue Administration‘ is another alternative.

I have never understood the opposition to casinos in NH. I think it will be wonderful: create jobs, generate MUCH NEEDED revenue and provide us with another in state destination.

I have never understood this argument about having to protect people from themselves — when we permit guns, smoking, alcohol, prescription drugs and newspaper editors driving at 90 mph. It seems so ironic in the ‘Live Free or Die‘ state, though did YOU know that Alton has a total ban on fireworks?

Yes, I find it amazing that this country actually enacted prohibition. Wow. Well trying to ban casinos for social good is in that same sorry boat. As Ray quite correctly points out NH permits, if not ENCOURAGES, gambling in the form of the Lottery. Just double standards and hypocrisy.

Yes, I know that at least in ultra-rich, Alton, I am the only one impacted by the increase in property tax. Hopefully there are others in less wealthy towns in NH who share my concern as to ever increasing property taxes.

Please take some time to think about this. Ray, at the end of his letter, encourages you to contact him. I know that he will help. He takes his job very seriously. So, please lets try to make casinos a reality in NH so that we can crawl out of the eternal income deficit hole that plagues NH. Thank you.
