About

The mission of the Tax Collector's Office is to collect as much tax revenue as possible, faithfully and impartially as stated in the oath of office, to help the Town meet its financial obligations each year.

The Tax Collector's office is located to the left at the end of the hall across from the Town Clerk's office.

What We Do

Most of the duties of the tax collector are specified by New Hampshire state law (RSA's) under Title V: Taxation. Those duties include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • "Every collector of taxes shall keep in suitable books a fair and correct account in detail of the taxes due, collected, and abated, and of all property sold for nonpayment of taxes, which books shall be public records." [CH 41:35]
  • Issue semi-annual tax bills and collect payments due July 1 and December 1.
  • Notify overdue taxpayers and execute a lien against the property if the tax remains unpaid by the deadline in the notice.
  • Identify and notify any mortgagees when a lien is executed.
  • Record all notices of liens and subsequent redemptions at the Rockingham County Registry of Deeds in a timely manner.
  • Prepare daily remittals to the Town Treasurer.
  • Prepare financial reports for the Town Report and the Department of Revenue.
  • Answer inquiries from members of the public such as property owners, lawyers, mortgage companies, and banks.
  • Write letters for property owners to assist in getting redeemed/released tax liens removed from credit reports.

What We Do Not Do

The tax collector's office does not:

  • Determine property assessments or set the property tax rate.
  • Grant abatements without written notice from the Board of Selectmen.
  • Grant discounts or exemptions on taxes.

All questions regarding determination of tax should be directed to the Board of Selectmen.
