MISSION STATEMENT

The Assessing Department is responsible for discovering, listing, and valuing all property in the Town of Newton.  All responsibilities and functions of the assessing office are based upon fair and equitable administration of the New Hampshire Constitution and statutes governing property assessments. Assessments are determined by following internationally accepted mass appraisal practices. The assessing staff strives to be fiscally responsible and sensitive to the public's needs.

Assessment records, sketches and some photos of properties may be viewed from a public computer in the lobby area at the Town Hall.  Property owners may have a copy of their assessment record card free of charge, however a copy of any other assessment record cards or map can be printed for a dollar each.  The Town tax maps and assessment data are now online.
