Understanding why your real estate taxes increased drastically from the previous year can be daunting. The attorneys at Wescott Law can help you understand the reasons, if any, for such an increase. When no substantial justification is found, an appeal of the assessment may be appropriate. We will be your advocate, maneuvering through the often complex and convoluted assessing procedures to obtain your tax abatement.
New Hampshire has no broad-based taxes, and, as a result, the state, counties, and municipalities rely heavily upon the real estate tax. The assessed value should always be governed by the fair market value of the property. When this system fails, Wescott Law has the knowledge and experience to obtain a reduction of your assessment for your property, whether it is your own residence or commercial property.
