I'm not sure if Wolfeboro has it but some towns give seniors citizen home owners a discount on their taxes which helps ease the pain. They should do that in all cities and towns, IMO.
In NH , Towns can only modify taxes if the legislature gives permission. You can get a small break, if Town Meeting allows it, for being a veteran, for example. Not much else. Every session, there are bills to ease the burden for this group or that, but easing it for one adds to the burden for another. Bill fails.
