2020 Property Tax Rate for the Town of Seabrook
The Seabrook Board of Selectmen announced that the State of New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration has set the 2020 Property Tax Rate for the Town of Seabrook at $15.97. This rate is an increase of 22¢ over last year’s rate of $15.75. The Town portion of the tax rate remained constant, at $6.57. The increase in the tax rate is driven by an increase in the School portion of the rate of 19¢. The Board of Selectmen adopted, for FY 2019, a change in water and sewer rates that was designed to eliminate the subsidy going from taxpayers to water and sewer ratepayers. That change in policy produced approximately $1.5 million in additional local revenue in both 2019 and 2020, allowing the fiscal burden to be shifted away from Seabrook taxpayers, helping to stabilize the Town tax rate.
