The Tax Collector’s duties include the billing and collection of monies for property taxes, yield and excavation taxes and land use change taxes.  We do not offer assessing information or property card information.  Please refer to the Assessing Department which is part of the Selectmen’s Office at 603-927-2400 for this information.

Our Tax year runs from April 1st through March 31st.  Assessments are recorded as of April 1st of each year.  Any new construction, additions, decks, subdivision, etc. is assessed by the town’s assessor between January and March.

What is the Tax Rate?  The anticipated tax rate is established each year.  It is broken down by State, Local, Town and County (see above).  The tax rate is set in the fall each year and will show up as either an increase or decrease in your 2nd issue tax statement.

The Town of Sutton bills twice a year.  Your first statement is an estimate and is due after July 1st.  This estimate is based on ½ of the previous year’s tax statement.  Your 2nd issue tax statement is due after December 1st and is calculated using the new rate multiplied by your property’s assessed value as of April 1st less any credits.

IF YOUR TAXES ARE PAID BY YOUR MORTGAGE COMPANY, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO FORWARD THE TAX STATEMENT TO THEM.

Statements are sent, by state law, to the last known addressee/address.  The assessing department updates ownership records according to property transfer from the Merrimack County Registry of Deeds.  The address and name on the deed is what is used.  As a property owner in the Town of Sutton it is your responsibility to make sure that your mailing address is updated at all times.  If you have a change of address, etc. you must submit it in writing.  Interest is charged at 12% per annum on tax bills not paid by the due date.

IN THE FUTURE THERE WILL BE A LINK TO PAY YOUR TAXES ON-LINE AS WELL.  Keep checking this site for updated information.
