2013 Second Installment Tax Bill Update
Bow is in queue to have the property tax rate set by the State of NH – Department of Revenue.  The tax rate setting is later this year due to delays caused by the Federal shutdown and Bow utility assessment changes.  As a result, it is anticipated that tax bills will be issued in late November and due early January, 2014.  For those who prefer to pay their tax bills in this calendar year for income tax purposes, payments can be accepted as soon as the bills are issued.    Property taxes can be researched and/or paid online utilizing the links below.

Property Tax Payments & Research
General Information:
The Town Clerk/Tax Collector has the responsibility of collecting property, yield (gravel & timber), current use change taxes and sewer payments. Property tax bills are due semi-annually, in July and December. The tax rate is not set until the fall of each year; therefore, the first bill due in July is estimated on the previous year's tax rate. The tax year runs from April 1 to March 31.

If you want a receipt for payment, please bring or mail the top portion of your bill with a self-addressed stamped envelope. It will be validated and returned to you.

Escrow Accounts
If your taxes are in escrow, it is your responsibility to send a copy of your tax bill to your mortgage company, and to ensure payment. The Tax Collector does not automatically send tax bills to mortgage companies.

Assessing, Abatements, Current Use, Credits, Exemptions & Tax Appeals
By law, the Town Clerk / Tax Collector does not have any role in assessing or levying taxes. If you have any questions on assessing, current use, "Intent to Cut" forms, gravel excavation fees, elderly exemptions/deferrals, abatements and/or appeals, please contact the Assessing Office at (603) 228-1187, extension 114.
