Property owners are responsible for any interest that accrues on unpaid tax balances after the due date, even if a bill is not received. Starting April 1, 2019, interest accrues at 8% per annum after the due date per NH-RSA 76:13. (The rate prior to April 1, 2019 was 12%). All bills are mailed at the same time, on the same day, from our printer in Concord. They are mailed to the last known owner, at the last known address, by State law, and are due on the due date reflected on the bill.
It is your responsibility, as the property owner, to make sure the Assessor’s office has the correct mailing address. If this is a newly purchased property, please verify that the Assessor’s office has the updated mailing address as they take the mailing address from the recorded deed, even though this may be your former address. Updating a mailing address with the Town Clerk’s office does not update the mailing address on the tax bills.
If you have not received a bill you should contact the tax office at 603-926-6769. If your mailing address has changed please notify the assessor’s office at 603-929-5837 to change the address on the bill. Unfortunately, there may be instances where you don’t receive a bill, however, it is the property owner’s responsibility to pay the taxes, and any fees due, whether or not you receive a bill. You can always check online to see what is due, or you can call us, or email the Tax Collector Department and we can email you a PDF copy of your bill.
