PROPERTY TAX RATE IS SET/BILLS SENT
The 2023 property tax rate is set at $20.00/$1000 assessed value.
|2023 Tax Rate||2022 Tax Rate||Difference|
There are two tax bills each year. The first bill of the year is an estimate, based on one-half of the previous year’s tax. This tax bill is mailed out near the end of May, is usually due July 1st every year. The tax rate is set in the fall of the year, after which the bill is printed. This bill is calculated using the new rate multiplied by your property’s assessed value as of April 1st. This bill is usually mailed at the end of October and due by December 1st.
The largest factor is the tax rate is appropriations, or the budget the voters approved in March. Another factor is the non property tax revenue the town collects each year. Once the final estimates are submitted to the New Hampshire Department of Revenue, the DRA sets the tax rate.
Here is an article explaining the property tax in New Hampshire.

Danbury was not an original colonial grant, but was formed from part of the town of Alexandria to the north. In 1794, a group of Alexandria residents petitioned the state legislature to separate Alexandria into two towns due to the inconvenience of having a mountain divide the town, making it difficult for all the residents to gather in a single place.
The petition was granted in 1795, and the lower piece was incorporated as Danbury in that year. The name was suggested by a settler from Danbury, Connecticut. Later more land was added to Danbury from Hill and Wilmot.
In 1800 there were 165 people in Danbury, which on July 10, 1874 was transferred from Grafton County to Merrimack County. Today there are close to 1,300 people in Danbury.
