Bills are sent to the address of the last known owner by State law. The Assessor's Office updates its records according to transfers received from the Rockingham County Registry of Deeds after they have been recorded. Your attorney or title company who handled the closing should have checked the status of taxes due. However, it is YOUR responsibility as the new owner to make sure taxes are paid and to advise the assessing department of your mailing address in writing. If you have any questions concerning this, refer to your closing statement or call us.
Any tax bill not paid by the due date is considered delinquent. Interest is calculated at the designated APR on any delinquent bill.
