What is the tax rate?

The current tax rate for the 2021 tax year is $26.98 per $1,000 of assessed value. The tax rate is set by Municipal Services for the State of New Hampshire sometime in the month of October. The new rate will be shown on the bill that is mailed to you in November.

The tax rate is expressed as dollars per $1,000 of assessed value. The tax for each taxable parcel is calculated by multiplying the parcel’s assessed value by the tax rate, as calculated and approved by the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration (DRA), so the tax for each parcel is at the same percentage of assessed value. The tax, therefore, is a tax according to value. The City’s total, or combined, tax rate consists of four components: municipal, local school, state school, and county.
