The primary function of the Assessor's office is the annual assessment of properties located within the city to determine fair market value as of April 1st for tax purposes. The assessment year runs from April 1st through March 31st.

UPDATE REGARDING: Exemption and Credit Deadline to File TAX YEAR 2020:

To assure exemptions and credits are applied to the current tax year, all new applications typically must be received by April 15th. In light of the current situation, taxpayers who wish to apply are encouraged to do so by July 15th so that enough time is available to return to normal operations and complete the approval process. Applications that are received after the statutory deadline but before the tax rate is set by the NH Department of Revenue Administration will be accepted and can be considered under the law. Incomplete applications will result in a request for information and may ultimately because for denial. If you have any questions, please call the Assessing Department at 527-1268 or email
