Current Use Refresher Course for Municipal Officials

Broadcast Date: 
Tuesday, December 22, 2020

New Hampshire’s current use law (RSA 79-a) was enacted in 1973 as a property tax strategy designed to help landowners keep their open land undeveloped.  Instead of being taxed at its highest potential use, land is assessed at its present use.  This refresher course will cover the role municipal officials play in the administration of the State’s current use program.

Join NHDRA’s Rick Evans, Timber Tax Appraiser with the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration, as he shares best practices and answers frequently-asked questions for municipal officials in regard to current use application procedures, including administrative rules (Cub 100-300), land classification, maps and forms, and explanation of topics such as the 20% recreational discount, the soil potential index, and the land use change tax.

This webinar is for select boards, town clerks, tax collectors, conservation commissioners, road agents, forestry committee members, and any other municipal employees who may play a local role in the administration of the Current Use program.
