First, it must be determined that your property is over-assessed.
Many factors need to be reviewed when determining if a property is over-assessed. Property Tax Advisors looks at the current real estate market, comparable sale and lease activity, property condition, as well as how the property is performing from an income standpoint, to determine if the assessment is equitable.
Abatement applications can be filed after the final tax bill is issued by the municipality (usually November or December). In NH, the abatement application deadline is March 1st. The municipality can grant, deny, or give a partial abatement based on what information is submitted with the application. By default, if no response has been issued to the taxpayer by July 1st, the application is deemed denied.
Taxpayers have two options available when appealing a municipality’s decision regarding an abatement request.
Both options require that the appeal be submitted with evidence of market value no later than September
We, at Property Tax Advisors, are here to serve taxpayers by reviewing and analyzing each client's property as every property is unique and demands its own strategy to successfully achieve an abatement. We work with our clients to determine what the best appeal path will be.
