Town Wide Valuation - New Assessments
A town-wide valuation authorized by the Select Board and the NH Department of Revenue Administration has been completed. Preliminary Assessment Value letters with the new assessment for all properties located in Rollinsford were mailed mid August and informal reviews/appointments with Avitar were held the week of August 22, 2022.
If you feel that the value of your property is not representative of the market value property as of April 1, 2022 or you have not received a letter, please contact the Town’s Assessor of Record, Avitar, at (603) 798-4419 or email [email protected]. If you have not received a response from Avitar within 3 business days please contact [email protected] or call (603) 742-2510 X320.
The total value of the Town has changed, and the new tax rate will also change proportionately. Therefore, please DO NOT multiply the new assessment by last year’s tax rate. The new tax rate will not be set until October or November.
Rollinsford tax maps include all parcel boundary changes made through April 1. The color parcel maps show the individual parcels along with parcel dimension information, public footpaths, Rights of Way, parking areas, building footprints, etc.. The parcel maps are in PDF format and require freely available Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing and printing.
- Disclaimer: Property information shown in the parcel maps was compiled from the existing Assessor’s Tax Maps maintained by the Assessor’s Office. Parcel boundary data was NOT compiled through property research and recompilation. The Town and its mapping companies assume no legal responsibility for the information, errors or omissions on these maps.
- About the file: By downloading and opening the index page, an individual map page can be opened by clicking on the appropriate map number of interest. For example, if you are interested in seeing parcel 12-10-0, ’12’ is the tax map for where that parcel is located. Open the file and scroll to map 12 (map numbers appear in lower right-hand corner). The lot number is 10-0.
