Understanding the NH Real Estate Property Tax Cycle
In the State of New Hampshire, NH real estate taxes are assessed by the local town assessing office.
The annual tax is based on a tax year from April 1 through March 31, with tax bills generated usually in June and December.
The June bill covers the period Apirl 1 through September 30.
The December bill covers the period October 1 through March 31
The June bill has the taxpapyer pay one half of the estimated annual tax due. The Town will have established its tax rate by the second billing done in December.
Since the town established its annual bill rate in time for the second bill generated in December, the full annual tax is billed and the lst payment already made is credited to the annual tax bill.
