NH Personal Property Tax:

Personal property taxes in New Hampshire are collected at the local level. Municipalities send tax bills to the location of the property on an annual, semi-annual, or quarterly basis. Tax due dates are based on the bill's issue date. The assessed value of residental property is based on 100% of the full market value. Local tax rates are adjusted to reflect the property's value changes. These equalized tax rates (ETR) reflect the local properties' true market values.
