2021 TOWN WIDE PROPERTY REVALUATION NEARING COMPLETION
NH RSA 75:8-a requires that all municipalities complete a town-wide revaluation of all properties every five years.
A revaluation is the process of conducting the data collection and market analysis necessary to equalize the values of all properties within the town, bringing all to at or near 100% as of April 1, 2021. This ensures that all contribute an equitable portion of the total tax burden.
The appraisal company of Commerford Nieder Perkins, LLC has recently completed a valuation update of all properties within the Town of Danbury for the 2021 tax year.
The preliminary 2021 assessed values are now available.

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.
