What is it Equalization?

Equalization is a process carried out annually by Municipal Assessing Jurisdictions and the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration (DRA) which ensures that common property tax burdens are apportioned fairly and equitably among taxpayers.  Sales from a period of October 1 through September 31 of the following year are reviewed in each taxing jurisdiction. Municipal officials indicate whether the transaction is arm's length, and verify selling price and assessed value. The Sales Ratios (Assessed Value/Selling Price = Ratio) are analyzed by DRA to determine the assessment to fair market value ratio for each taxing jurisdiction. A ratio of 100% indicates that the town is assessed at Market value.

DRA is pleased to offer a the new Mosaic Equalization system in partnership with the University of New Hampshire Technology Transfer Center. If you do not have user credentials contact patrick santoso at psantoso@unh.edu
