Procedures for a Reassessment Petition Hearing

The purpose of a reassessment petition hearing is for municipal officials (both employees and assessing contractors), petitioners, taxpayers and representatives of the department of revenue administration (the “DRA”) to testify as to the overall assessment equity and any need for a reassessment or other remedial measure(s).

During the hearing, the board will explain the general procedures to be followed and all parties who intend to give testimony will be sworn in. The board will first hear from the petitioner(s), next from the municipality and then from anyone who has testimony germane to the criteria in RSA 71-B:16-a. The board may inquire of anyone who testifies.

Please note a reassessment petition hearing is neither an opportunity to discuss the appeal of an individual’s assessment nor a forum for hearing public opinion on the overall property tax system. In order to allow ample time for all interested parties to be heard, please keep your comments specific to the reassessment petition before the board.

After the record is closed, the board will determine if any action is warranted based on the criteria contained in RSA 71-B:16-a and issue an order. See also PART Tax 208
