What is the tax year?
Throughout the State of New Hampshire, the tax year runs from April 1st through the following March 31st. Assessment of your property is based on the value as of April 1st each year and appears on your tax bill.
How often and when will I be billed?
There are two bills per year. The first bill of the year is an estimate, based on one half of the previous year’s tax rate. This bill, printed and mailed out during the month of May/June, is due in July. The tax rate is set in the fall of the year, after which the final bill is printed. The final bill is calculated using the new rate multiplied by your property’s assessed value as of April 1st, less any payment made to the first bill. The final bill is printed and mailed from October/November dependent on when the tax rate is set.
