NHMA Webinar: Understanding New Hampshire's Timber Tax Laws

Wednesday, August 21, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

New Hampshire has laws and regulations designed to encourage responsible timber harvesting and taxation (RSA Chapter 79).  In turn, municipal officials have the authority and responsibility to work with state agencies to ensure that these laws are consistently enforced.

Join Rick Evans, Timber Appraiser with the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration, who will cover who is responsible for what, how town officials are to be notified of timber harvesting, timeline for timber tax reporting, review of intent-to-cut forms, bonding, timber tax assessments (including determining average stumpage values), and other issues related to timber taxes and what municipal officials need to know when planning or reviewing a timber harvest.

This webinar is for select boards, town clerks, tax collectors, code enforcement officers, conservation commissioners, road agents, forestry committee members, police officers, and other municipal employees who play a vital role in the enforcement of the State’s timber tax laws.
