You missed the March 1 tax abatement deadline – now what?
March 1 was the deadline to request an abatement of real estate taxes under RSA 76:16,I(b). The courts and BTLA have been strict in holding taxpayers to that deadline. If a proper abatement application was not filed by March 1 then the taxpayer lost the right to challenge their 2016 assessment. In certain circumstances, however, a taxpayer still may challenge their 2016 assessment. A taxpayer may be able to recoup taxes paid in prior years if the assessment was illegal or the town engaged in improper assessing practices and attempted to conceal the practice. A contract entered into with the municipality relating to real estate taxes also may exclude a taxpayer from the March 1 deadline. Some taxpayers may be able to obtain an abatement for prior years simply by demonstrating “good cause.” The requirements associated with each of these options are too nuanced to set forth in this message.
