IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STRAFFORD PROPERTY OWNERS
The Town's assessing Agent and Assistant will be continuing the process of verifying data on properties that have sold in the past (2) years, in addition to the appraisal of all new construction for ad velorem tax purposes and to check construction that was not complete as of April 2015. Data verification of all properties within the Town boundaries will continue to be done on a cyclical basis. Please give them your cooperation in this process.
Please be advised that refusing entry to an assessing agent could jeopardize your right to appeal on your assessment.
Statistical Revaluation Update
In accordance with New Hampshire State law and with appropriations voted at the 2016 Town Meeting, Strafford has been in the process of undergoing a Statistical Revaluation of all real properties within the Town boundaries. KRT, the firm contracted to complete this work, is nearly finished. In early to mid-September property owners will receive a letter from KRT notifying them of their property’s current assessed value. The letter will also outline the process to follow should owners believe their property value is inaccurate. Informal meetings to discuss property values will be held in mid to late September at the Town Hall; the letter will direct property owners how to schedule an appointment should that be desired. The Town website, www.strafford.nh.gov, will have updated information concerning the process as it becomes available. As always, should there be any questions about the process, please feel free to call the Town Office at 664-2192 ext 107.
