Default '21 Moultonborough Tax Rate Delay

Does anyone know why Moultonborough's tax rates aren't set yet and/or when they will be?

I don't really wanna pay taxes in the first place, but it seems like they're very late this year?

I called Moultonborough tax collector last week asking the same question. I was told that they are waiting for the State of NH to inform them as to what the tax rate will be. Said it may be another couple of weeks.

If that's the case, the bills might not be due until after the new year. Pretty crazy.

I wonder what the issue is?

The silence from M'boro Town Hall is deafening. Have you heard what the percent increase in overall assessed valuation is for the current update? Have you heard what the percent changes were for waterfront land, waterfront buildings, commercial, non waterfront land, non waterfront buildings? Nope, me neither. Silence. But BOS busies themselves with small ball items like approving raffles, steamboat rallies, etc. However no discussion or information on property taxes. PENDING state approval, they could disclose what the preliminary change will be in the town and school tax rates as well as the county portion of the bill....all PENDING. They have the data.

According to this weeks Town Administrator weekly report and a discussion with town officials, it appears the "problem" has been caused solely by the SAU45 School Board / Administration who have failed to meet the required due dates for forms to be submitted to the state. And it seems they may not have been submitted as of yet. We are not talking about a day or so late....we are talking about WEEKS!!! I do not understand how they can miss important dates and cause problems for taxpayers at year end. Where is the accountability?? The schools need to do their job ON TIME and submit their data immediately if they have not done so. If you go to the NH DRA web site, there are six pages of cities/towns that have had their tax rates approved, so others are able to get the job done on time.

Sure, schools (and other government entities) should be getting their stuff done on time, but I'm not angry about the delay (nor do I think anyone else should be). I mean, I'm not exactly chomping at the bit to give money away, right?!

I was merely asking to confirm I hadn't missed anything and to make sure I didn't need to make a change in budgeting as we get into the Christmas season. We've already started to hemorrhage money, soooo...

The form...MS-25 is due to DRA on September 1st. It is now over 2 months overdue. Seems to be a problem here. Some people do care about getting their bills on time and being able to pay before December 31st for tax purposes.

I get it, I do—it's why I asked—but we're not all that late. Last year, bills were sent out 11/9, the year before on the 22nd.

And we still have, like, five weeks before the end of the year and taxes become a thing.

I guess I'm just trying to keep all those things in my life in perspective, and, all other things considered, this isn't a big deal at all.

Default A real problem

If indeed, the town has not sent in the form(s) in a timely fashion for me that is a very real problem. Now, this does not have an effect on me, being a resident of Alton. However, I can put it in a perspective that most property owners may relate to.

In my prior life, I worked in personal lines insurance for a couple of different insurance companies, and at times, we would send out "Renewal Questionnaires". These forms, conspicuously stated at the top and bottom of the firm, that failure to return the form before xxxxxx date could result in non-renewal of the policy.

I'm sure that the State informs towns that failure to send in the required documents will result in a delay in the results being processed. (If it was me, a form two months late would automatically find its way to the bottom of the pile).

Hopefully residents will remember who is responsible for the delay, especially if this ends up being a recurring problem.

Usually municipalities will try to get them out in time to set a December 1st due date on them for purposes of keeping two payments in the same federal tax year.

It helps for planning purposes for those that itemize.
