Taxes in New Hampshire
In New Hampshire, the subject of taxation is a sticky one. Because there are no broad (state wide) sales taxes or personal state income taxes, the properties taxes are among the highest in the nation. And although the state doesn’t charge income tax, it does tax income from dividends and interest.
Property Tax in New Hampshire
Property taxes are levied by the local or municipal governments and are based upon the assessed valuation. Contact the Property Appraisal Division for more information on property tax rates in your area.
Interest and Dividend Tax
New Hampshire levies a 5% tax on all interest and dividend income. All resident individuals, fiduciaries and trusts with non-transferable shares that earn interest and dividends in excess of $2,400 are required to pay this tax. There is, however, a $1,200 exemption for taxpayers who are blind and/or are disabled and unable to work, or are older than 65.
Any gambling winnings are taxed at 10%, so if you got lucky at the casino, don’t forget to pay those taxes!
The Business Profit Tax is an 8.5% tax levied on all business organizations earning more than $50,000 in gross business income. Some businesses are also required to pay the Business Enterprise Tax if they earned more than $150,000 in gross receipts.
