New Hampshire (N.H.) 2015 – 2016 Property Tax Rates: Highest, Lowest & Everything Else.
by 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 Given that people find these posts, in the main, via search engines they would invariably end up at an out-of-date post.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.
