Property Tax Relief Program Extension

Assessing Department News

The New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration (NHDRA) is accepting applications for its Low and Moderate Income Homeowners Property Tax Relief program through June 30, 2020. NHDRA distributed more than $1.1 million through this tax relief program last year, and more than $44 million in total since the Low and Moderate Income Homeowners Property Tax Relief program launched in 2002. 

Applicants are required to submit their individual income tax returns with the application. However, given the federal July 15 extension, some may not have filed their federal return by the June 30 Low and Moderate Income Homeowners Property Tax Relief program deadline. An existing provision allows NHDRA to accept late applications, if complete, until November 1 if the Commissioner believes the individual was prevented from completing his or her application in certain circumstances. 

NHDRA is urging individuals to submit their applications by June 30. If an applicant has not yet filed his or her federal tax return by that date, NHDRA still urges the individual to submit his or her incomplete application by June 30, 2020 and submit the federal tax return as soon as it is complete, but no later than November 1, 2020.

Forms and instructions for the Low and Moderate Income Homeowners Property Tax Relief Program are located on the NHDRA website.
