AN ACT relative to billing for the semi-annual collection of property taxes.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

1 Property Taxation; Semi-Annual Collection; Determination of Partial Billing. Amend RSA 76:15-a, I to read as follows:

I. Taxes shall be collected in the following manner in towns and cities which adopt the provisions of this section in the manner set out in RSA 76:15-b. A partial payment of the taxes assessed on April 1 in any tax year shall be computed by taking the prior year’s assessed valuation times [1/2] a percentage of the previous year’s tax rate chosen to equalize the partial payments with the final tax bills; provided, however, that whenever it shall appear to the selectmen or assessors that certain individual properties have physically changed in valuation, they may use the current year’s appraisal times [1/2] the chosen percentage of the previous year’s tax rate to compute the partial payment. If the selectmen or assessors do not choose a percentage of the previous year’s tax rate, then the partial payment shall be computed using ½ of the previous year’s tax rate.

2 Effective Date. This act shall take effect April 1, 2005.
