Current Use

Under Current Use (RSA 79-A), qualifying land is assessed at its present use, rather than at its highest potential use. The regulation is designed to help landowners keep open space undeveloped. 

 Qualifying land includes

  • A tract of farm land, forest land or unproductive land totaling 10 or more acres.
  • A tract of any combination of farm land, forest land or unproductive land which totals 10 or more acres
  • A tract of undeveloped land of any size, actively devoted to growing agricultural or horticultural crops, with an annual gross income from the sale of crops normally produced totaling at least $2,500
  • A certified tree farm of any size
  • A tract of unimproved wetland of any size
For definitions, details, and application forms consult the State of NH Current Use Handbook, available online at www.nh.gov/revenue/munc_prop/propertyappraisal.htm

 The deadline for applying for each tax year is April 15th.  For an application, stop by the Town Hall or use the link above for a digital copy of the Current Use application and reference materials. If you have any questions, please contact the Assessing Coordinator at 352-7411 ext.114.
