MISSION STATEMENT
The Tax Collector's mission is to collect as much tax revenue as possible that is due to the town, to help the Town meet its financial obligations each year.

GENERAL INFORMATION
The Tax Collector is responsible for the preparation and mailing of the tax bills based on information contained on the current tax roll certified by the Assessing Department.
The Assessing Department is responsible for the preparation of the tax roll, assessed values, exemptions, owner's name and address, address changes and the legal description of the property.
The property owner is responsible for knowing that taxes are due and payable twice a year. If you do not receive a bill for each property owned, please contact the Tax Collector's office. If you have a mortgage company that pays your taxes, please forward to them, the tax bill.
Our services include the collection of Property Tax, Current Use Tax, Gravel Tax, and Timber Tax.
Throughout the State of New Hampshire, the tax year runs from April 1st through the following March 31st. Assessments of your property are computed as of the value on April 1st of each tax year. These assessments will appear on your property tax bill.
There are two bills issued per year; the first bill is an estimate based on one half of the previous year's tax. This bill is mailed out near the end of May and is usually due July 1st every year. The State of New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration sets the tax rate for the year in the fall. The final bill is calculated using the new tax rate multiplied by your property's assessed value as of April 1st, less any payments made on the first bill. The second bill is mailed by the end of October and is usually due December 1st each year.
If you pay your bill by mail, I will accept a postmark.  Interest starts accruing the day after the bill is due. There is NO grace period.  If you would like a receipt, please send both copies of your bill and a SASE. If you are paying your bill in person, please bring in both copies of your bill and we will stamp your copy paid.
With the exception of whether or not a bill has been paid, all questions in reference to your tax bill will be answered by the Assessor’s office at 382-4405 ext. 14.
