New Hampshire Property Tax Bills are soon to issue
Most communities in New Hampshire have sent out their 2019 property tax bills. These tax bills have an assessing date of April 1, 2019. The property tax assessment of taxable real estate should be the fee simple market value of the property as of April 1, 2019, multiplied by the jurisdiction's median assessment ratio. If your property is assessed in excess of that amount you may have grounds for a tax appeal. In general, Abatement Applications must be filed with the local assessors by March 1, 2020. If you are aggrieved by the action or inaction of the local assessors, you may file a petition with the State Board of Tax and Appeals or the Superior Court in the County where the property is located. The deadline for filing the petitions is generally September 1, 2020. There you will be afforded a full hearing on the merits where the rules of evidence will apply.
