Assessing Department

Mission Statement

The Assessing Department has the responsibility to discover and list all taxable property, maintain accurate ownership information and process all request as pertains to the various programs offered under the laws of the State of New Hampshire.

All responsibilities and functions of the Assessing Department are based upon fair and equitable administration of the New Hampshire Constitution and New Hampshire State Statutes governing property assessments. Assessments are determined by following internationally accepted Mass Appraisal practices.

Assessment records which contain ownership information, sales amount, book & page, current assessment, sketch of the structure, interior and exterior data and acreage, along with a photo of the property are available at town hall through the use of a public computer terminal located next to the Assessing Department or online.

If you are a Stratham property owner a copy of your assessment record card is free of charge. Due to the assessment cards being public information the public may purchase a copy of assessment record cards for a fee of $1.00 each. Currently the town's digitized tax maps are available at the Assessing Department or on the Assessing website.
