Municipal Resources Inc. (MRI) has completed the required town-wide revaluation of assessed properties. (Periodic revaluations are required as per RSA 75:8-a). Property owners should have received correspondence from MRI citing the new assessed value of your property.
The new assessed values will be used to calculate the second issue tax bills for 2018.
There are a few things to keep in mind when you review your revised assessment:
- Your current assessment reflects market value as of April 1, 2013 which is when all assessments were last updated.
- Your revised (new) assessment reflects market value as of April 1, 2018.
- The real estate market has changed significantly due to market trends over the last 5 years.
- Do not use the current tax rate to calculate your property taxes. Based on the Town’s budget and revised assessments, a new tax rate (which may be lower) will be determined by the Department of Revenue Administration later this fall.
Included in the correspondence you received are the instructions to schedule a hearing with MRI. A hearing allows the property owner to question and discuss your updated assessed value.
Please note the option to schedule a hearing is time-limited.
Please follow instructions included in the correspondence to guarantee a hearing is scheduled.
The Assessor's hours vary during the week depending on site visits and outside appointments. You may leave the assessor a message at 887-8392 or if you need immediate assistance, please call the Selectmen's Office at 887-3646.
