- Sewer Commission Note on Toilet Paper Shortage
Since the Corona virus has hit, people across the country have been stocking up on supplies. This has created an unprecedented toilet paper shortage. People are creative and we will get through this. Unfortunately, our sewer pipes and pumps are not as adaptable as we are. If you are out of toilet paper and are using other means for bathroom hygiene PLEASE DON'T FLUSH IT! Even paper towels, personal hygiene wipes (adult and baby) and rag, t shirt or other strips of material will cause problems. In order to keep our system (and your toilets) operational, if you find yourself in this situation, PLEASE, PLEASE (!!!) bag and throw away these sort of items rather than flushing them.
It won't be forever, but the last thing we need at this point with so much uncertainty and fear that we are already under, are toilets that won't flush. Other areas around the country are already experiencing problems. Please help us to keep things flowing!
If you have an enormous supply of toilet paper, please consider donating to those who are lacking, check with your friends and neighbors. If your neighbor flushes something that binds our pumps up and shuts down the system, it doesn't matter how many rolls you have stocked, your toilet won't flush either. We are all in this together! Stay safe.

- 2019 Town of Tilton Tax Rate
The Town of Tilton 2019 tax rate was set at $22.06 (this rate is used for the 2nd tax bill of 2019 and the 1st estimated tax bill of 2020). The board of selectmen returned to taxpayers the recent municipal aid received from the State as well as some unassigned fund balance to offset half the cost of the land purchase on Route 132.
2019 was a reassessment year for the Town, and we saw our equalized value increase from $512,913,645 in 2018 to $620,756,767 in 2019. The increase in the equalized value causes a lower tax rate (think teeter totter like action, equalized value goes down, rate goes up and vice versa). A complete explanation may be found in the finance director's Guide to the Town of Tilton Tax Rate for 2019. It is available to help citizens learn how our tax rate is calculated.
