PORTSMOUTH HIRES THREE COMPANIES TO COMPLETE
2015 CYCLICAL REVALUATION


Nov. 21, 2014

 

As required by New Hampshire State Statute 75:8-a, the City of Portsmouth Assessor's Office will begin the re-appraisal of all property within the City for Fiscal Year 2016 / Tax Year 2015 so that assessments are at full and true value (market value). This re-appraisal is required at least as often as every fifth year. The City's last revaluation was completed in Fiscal Year 2011 / Tax Year 2010.

The City of Portsmouth has hired KRT Appraisal to assist in the re-appraisal of all residential properties, Property Valuation Advisors to assist in the re-appraisal of all commercial properties and MR Valuation Consulting to assist in the re-appraisal of all utility property.

These companies will be working with the Assessor's Office to make the process successful. There are five major phases to a municipal revaluation: Data Collection, Market Analysis, Valuation, Field Review, and Informal Hearings. The Data Collection process was completed by the Assessor's Office. The next four phases now will be implemented and completed by the three companies hired by the City of Portsmouth in order to successfully complete the revaluation.

Starting December 1, 2014 through July of 2015, you may observe representatives of the three companies driving by your property. Representatives will have their pictures posted on the City Assessor's Web page, and they will carry Picture IDs issued by the City of Portsmouth. They will also have their vehicles listed with both the Assessor's Office and Police Department.
