New Hampshire Taxing Information

Important Note Regarding Covid-19 Tax Relief in New Hampshire

We are in a time of economic uncertainty. Many of us will be affected. Many businesses will be harmed. Many bills will go unpaid for a while. We all must prioritize health. Stressing about taxes is something we hope to help you minimize.

Even if you don’t know the scale and scope of your tax problem, we can help advise you on strategies to come out of the Coronavirus crisis in your best position tax-wise. Even though the IRS is allowing for delayed filings and payments, they are not forgiving taxes. We can help you strategize how and when to prioritize your taxes, your business, and/or personal expenses.

The Department of Revenue Administration is responsible for collecting taxes due to the state. Their Collection Division is charged with ensuring taxpayer compliance through enforced collection actions. Despite the state not having general income or sales tax, there are still a wide range of taxes that the state collects.

Appeals

You have the right to petition the Hearings Bureau, in writing and in a timely manner, if you receive an assessment of liability that you disagree with.

Installment Agreement

If you are considered unable to pay your liability in full, the DRA may consider an installment agreement. In order to secure the State’s interests, a tax lien may also be filed against your property. It is important to comply with any terms and conditions the DRA sets forth, lest you incur further penalties or an enforced collection process.

License and Permit Revocation

The DRA may revoke, suspend, or deny the renewal of some licenses or permits if you fail to pay taxes or associated costs on time.

Priority One: Stopping Aggressive Enforced Collections

Liens

If you fail to pay or otherwise address your liability, the DRA may file a lien against your property. A tax lien acts as a public notice of liability, and enables the State to seize and sell that property if necessary.

Notice of Assessment

If additional liability is found to be due after an audit, you will receive a Notice of Assessment containing a bill for the amount due. If an assessment is made without an audit, you will receive a Notice of Demand for Payment.

Offset

If you have a tax liability with the DRA, they may choose to intercept any tax-related refunds or credits due to you and apply them directly to your liability.

Penalties

Failure to fully pay or file your taxes can result in additions to your total liability in the form of penalties. Penalties vary by circumstance and by the type of tax they are associated with.

Power of Attorney

You may authorize an individual to represent you before the DRA in tax matters. To do so, you must complete and submit one of the accepted forms of documentation.
