- 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.
