What is the tax year?
The tax year in North Hampton runs from April 1st through March 31st. All property is assessed as it exists on April 1st.
How often and when will I be billed?
The Town of North Hampton issues semi annual tax bills. The first bill is mailed June 1st and is due July 1st. The second bill is mailed November 1st and is due December 1st.
What if I do not get a tax bill?
State law requires that tax bills be sent to the address of the last known property owner. The Assessor’s Office updates property records after receiving copies of the recorded deed from the Rockingham County Registry of Deeds. The attorney or closing company should check the status of taxes due. It remains the responsibility of the new property owner to insure that taxes are paid and to notify the Town of any change in mailing address. If you have questions, refer to your closing statement or call us at the Town Office. Interest at 12% per annum is charged on tax bills not paid by the due date.
