AbatementsRSA 76:16 provides that an abatement may be granted for “good cause shown”. “Good cause” generally means: (1) establishing an assessment is disproportionate to market value and the municipalities level of assessment; or (2) establishing poverty and inability to pay the tax.  Filing for an abatement does not stay the collection of taxes; taxes should be paid as assessed.  If an abatement is granted, a refund with interest will be made. Applications are available at the Assessing Department and must be received by March 1st following the notice of tax.
