The State of New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration offers assistance to lessen the economic burden of the State Education Property Tax for eligible property owners.
An eligible applicant is a person who is:
• Single with adjusted gross income equal to or less than $20,000; or
• Married head of NH household with adjusted gross income less than or equal to $40,000; and
• Owns a homestead subject to the State Education Property Tax; and
• Has resided in that homestead on April 1 of the year for which the claim is made.
For tax year 2014, all property values will be updated to market value as of April 1, 2014, as required by State law. With the real estate market declining over the past few years, most of you will see your property values decrease. However, because values decrease, it DOES NOT mean your property taxes will decrease.
