Leo Smith, (lsmith at townofpeterborough.us) Assessing Department (Administration) records all property changes such as additions, subdivisions, change of ownership, address changes, appraisal of property for taxation, as well as abatements and exemptions.
The Tax Collector runs the tax warrant for approval by the Board of Selectmen. After the tax warrant is approved, the tax collector prints and mails the tax bills. All tax bills are mailed to the last known address of the owner(s) of record as of April 1st or to the new owner, if known. The tax bill provides detailed information about your property included but not limited to the land and amounts, any payments received, interest charged, and the balance due on the current year's taxes.
A history of the tax rates for all taxing authorities for the past fifteen years can be viewed in the tax rate history report see below. The information regarding the current tax rate is displayed in the tax rate chart. See below for links to charts.
The tax collector has the rights and remedies, including a lien and/or deeding on the real estate for unpaid tax bills, as provided in New Hampshire Statutes RSA 80.
Any information or questions regarding the tax billing, liens, and deeding should be directed in writing to the Town of Peterborough, Finance Department, 1 Grove Street, Peterborough, NH 03458, or by telephone to (603) 924-8000 ext. 103, or by email to (emarsh at townofpeterborough.us).
