New Hampshire Tax Kiosk

In January, the Town of Hancock will be offering the residents the ability to view their property tax bill invoice online. The Avitar Tax Collect Internet Kiosk allows residents to easily see their invoice and transaction records at any time of day without having to contact the Tax Collector.

The Tax Kiosk provides your assessment as well as transaction details for refinancing, filing of taxes, sales and purchases of homes, etc. The kiosk can be accessed by going clicking on the button below. It will take you directly to the Town of Hancock Kiosk section.

  

The Tax Kiosk does the following:

  • Once an owner or parcel is selected, a list of all recent invoices is displayed, showing type of invoice, due date, bill amount and outstanding due amount.

  • Internet users can change the Interest Date to determine the proper payment amount for future payments.

  • For any individual invoice, the Internet user can click the Transactions button to access additional information about the specific tax bill, including any transactions that have been made on that invoice, such as payments, abatements or penalties.

  • Taxpayers will have the ability to PRINT the information available on the Tax Kiosk for their records.

We are excited to provide this service to our community, making access to your public records available when it is convenient for you. You will no longer be restricted to Tax Collector hours on Monday and Wednesday.

It is important to note that your property tax bill information is governed by the Right-to-Know Law, RSA Chapter 91-A. Tax Property information is considered a public record available to anyone upon request. Our Town website already has this information provided in the annual reports; however the information is scattered in several documents and does not contain the current tax rate and billing information. It is in this spirit that we offer the NH Tax Kiosk to our residents. If you would prefer to not have your property listed on the NH Tax Kiosk, please contact the Tax Collector's office at tax@hancocknh.org or call 525.4441 Monday and Wednesday between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

We are happy to assist anyone who has any questions or would like help using the new Tax Kiosk. Call or email the Tax Office at your convenience.

Tax Bill Payment Protocol

Protocol for processing payments is as follows:

  • Tax bill transactions are processed according to the postmark date on the envelope we receive.
  • Funds are applied to interest first, then principal.
  • The Tax Collector does not have the authority to waive principal or interest due.
If you wish to receive a receipt, please include a self addressed, stamped envelope with your payment.
 
A reminder
to those taxpayers who own more than one parcel or have land in current use, please send payment in for all parcels billed. You can combine balances due and submit one payment, just be sure to include the bill(s) with the parcel ID number(s) to insure proper posting to all accounts.
