New Hampshire (N.H.) 2016 – 2017 Property Tax Rates: Highest, Lowest & Everything Else.

by Anura Guruge


New Hampshire property tax rates Anura Guruge


As I did for last year, i.e., 2015 – 2016, I am going to do just this ONE post and update it as more and more towns report.

So ideally anybody and everybody looking for 2016 – 2017 New Hampshire property tax information will always end up at this post. OK? Clear? Thanks.


As of December 12, 2016, 225 towns had published their 2016 – 2017 Property Tax Rates. (As always I have excluded the (exotic) N.H. Townships, Grants, Locations and Purchases that had $0.00 tax rate for the year. Wikipedia has a list of all these N.H. ‘exotics’. The other, non-zero exotics have a grey background and a (U) notation.)

This 225 list (marked ‘Final’ by the State) constitutes our ‘full house’.


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.

2015 – 2016 New Hampshire Property Tax season is underway — with tax bills being sent out in December 2015.

So far only 76 towns (31% of the 229 ‘Full House’) have reported. That is down from this time last year. But there will be a flurry of filings in the next 2 weeks.

On average, across, all 76 towns the difference between last year and this year is 2.36%.

But, that is the average and averages don’t tell the full story. There are a few significant hikes, e.g., Jaffery with 11.35%. But rates in Windam went down 10.5%.

Check the data at this MASTER post for 2015 – 2016. OK?

Towns such as Alton, Wolfeboro, Gilford, Meredith have yet to report.

2017 Rates Now Available.

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 Given that people find these posts, in the main, via search engines they would invariably end up at an out-of-date post.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.

Alton, N.H. in 2013 – 2014
is again 23rd lowest …


We got a letter today with our new, HIGHER assessment. C’est la vie. 

Given that we have a rather modest house — and as I said in a recent post I have seen local photographers with cameras worth more than our house — our assessment isn’t that bad.

Just a heads up.

The new 2014 – 2015 rates will come out towards the end of November 2014. They will GO UP. Of that there is no doubt or need for debate.

Enjoy.

altontaxday2013II

I already paid mine.

As I have mentioned before, to my utter bewilderment,
Alton’s in its infinite wisdom and unbelievable largess
does NOT maintain a Tax Delinquent list!

That would also mean they don’t go after those that don’t pay taxes.

Wow.

I just guess I was brought up wrong.

I kind of have a very true and trusty moral compass
when it comes to what is right and what is wrong,
what one’s civic duties should be
and the importance of maintaining your credibility.

James Michener in his autobiography says something along the lines
“I always considered it a PRIVILEGE to have to PAY taxes …”
and the profoundness of that statement is worth pondering
because that is what I have also always felt about paying taxes.

If I was homeless (as I have been) and had no income
I too would not have to pay any taxes.

Whether you like it or not, whether you stand on your head or not,
you, even in this country, this state and this town,
only have to pay taxes on what you own
and what you make
(after the due exemption).

So I don’t begrudge my taxes
because it means that I still have SOMETHING
to pay taxes on.

I gather, and I could be wrong,
that some of the Alton Central School (ACS)
Board Members don’t pay Alton taxes
— and , of course, there is no requirement for them to do so.
There job is to tell those that pay that they should pay more.
Bully for them.
But they never appear to have had a moral compass.

Happy Tax Day
IF this applies to YOU.
