Solar Exemption Information:
The Town of Swanzey’s current solar exemption is 100% of the market value of a solar powered system, provided it is used solely for the purpose of supplying electricity to the property where it is located. When a property owner obtains a building permit to construct a system, a notification will be provided to the assessor to inspect and value the system prior to April 1st along with other new construction.
A NH exemption/credit application form PA-29 must be filed prior to April 15th in order to receive the solar exemption. The PA-29 form is available on the Town website and in the assessing office at Town Hall. The owner only needs to file once. However, the exemption is not transferrable and a person who purchases a home with an exemption already in place must file a new application prior to April 15th of the next tax year.
