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).
If you feel you qualify it will be important to come into the Assessing Department and submit the application with all required paperwork by April 15, 2018 to avoid any delay in processing. 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.
