All Veteran’s Tax Credit
The City of Nashua has adopted State of NH - RSA 72:28-b - All Veteran’s Tax Credit.
If you were previously denied due to not serving in a qualifying war or conflict or not having a required medal, we encourage you to apply for this newly adopted All Veterans’ Tax Credit (RSA 72:28-b).
As this new legislation was adopted after 4/15/2017, the statutory deadline to apply for tax year 2017, if you feel you qualify it will be important to come into the Assessing Department and submit the application with all required paperwork by August 21, 2017 to avoid any delay in processing. Any application received after this date (but before the 2017 tax rate is approved) will be granted on a case-by-case basis for tax year 2017 and only if the reason for late filing is due to “accident, mistake or misfortune” as determined by the City of Nashua Board of Assessors. Otherwise, if all criteria are met, the All Veteran’s Tax Credit will be applied to your 2018 property tax bill, if application is received before 4/15/2018, the statutory deadline to apply for tax year 2018.
A person shall qualify for the All Veteran’s Tax Credit if the person is a resident of this state who served not less than 90 days of active duty service in the armed forces of the United States and was honorably discharged or an officer honorably separated from service; or the spouse or surviving spouse of such resident, provided that Title 10 training for active duty by a member of a national guard or reserve shall be included as service under this paragraph; provided however that the person is not eligible for and is not receiving a credit under RSA 72:28 - Standard and Optional Veteran’s Tax Credit or RSA 72:35 - Tax Credit for Service-Connected Total Disability.
As required for the Standard and Optional Veteran’s Credit (RSA 72:28), the veteran must be a resident of the State of NH for one year as of April 1st of the year of application and also be the owner of the property and using the property as their primary residence as of April 1st of the year of application.
Please come into the Assessing Department in Nashua City Hall, 229 Main Street, to complete the necessary documents to apply and bring with you your Form DD-214 (Member 4) or its equivalent showing entry and discharge dates of active duty and the character of service, your NH driver’s license and if ownership of the property is in a trust, a copy of the trust. We will only retain the two or three pages necessary to show a beneficial interest. If the surviving spouse is applying, the death certificate of the veteran must be provided or if the spouse is applying, the marriage certificate must be provided.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please call the Assessing Department at 603-589-3040. Our business hours are 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday.

Nashua Assessment Revaluation for 2013
The Assessor's Office has completed an Assessment Revaluation for 2013 (PDF). The assessed value represents an estimate of the fair market value of properties and is based on sales of similar properties that have occurred through the City of Nashua.
The mission of the Assessing Department is to ensure that all property within the City of Nashua is assessed fairly and equitably in accordance with RSA 75:1 which states in part [Assessing Departments] "shall appraise all taxable property at its full and true value in money...and shall receive and consider all evidence that may be submitted to them relative to the value of property". Accordingly, the Assessing Department's purpose is to administer NH State Laws and programs governing property assessment in an honest and professional manner.
To meet that responsibility, the Assessing Department, with a professionally trained team of appraisers, administrative personnel and state of the art technology, conduct various assessing practices to ensure an equitable and accountable real estate based assessment program. Therefore, the department is able to provide the citizens of Nashua with fair administration of programs governing property assessment, municipal efficiency and prompt response to public inquiries.
