The Low & Moderate Income Homeowners Property Tax Relief Program

The State of New Hampshire has enacted a law enabling property owners to receive relief of the state education portion of their property tax bill.

Application Deadline

Claim must be postmarked no earlier than May 1, 2023, and no later than June 30, 2023.

Elderly Exemption

Each municipality has adopted an elderly exemption. The amount of the exemption and the specific criteria (asset and income limits) to qualify are determined locally within statutory requirements. The exemption may be granted for a different dollar amount determined by the city or town to persons from age 65 up to 75; 75 up to 80; and 80 years old or older. The approved exemption is deducted from the amount of the property owner’s total assessed value prior to the calculation of tax due.

Application Deadline

  • Application, Form PA-29, must be filed with the municipal assessing officials of the city/town where the exemption is being requested by April 15 preceding the setting of the tax rate.
  • If you are applying for a tax exemption for the 2024 property taxes, which are due no earlier than December 1, 2024, you have until April 15, 2024 to file the application.
  • The municipal assessing official has until July 1 to send notice of their decision.

Property Tax-Aide has independently selected the property tax relief programs featured on this website that we think are the most relevant and beneficial to older adults. It is not an exhaustive list of all property tax relief programs available in each state. Please consult your local tax agency for a comprehensive listing of property tax relief programs in your area.
