Section 76:11-a

    76:11-a Information. –
I. The tax bill which is sent to every person taxed, as provided in RSA 76:11, shall show the rate for municipal, local education, state education, and county taxes separately, the assessed valuation of all lands and buildings for which said person is being taxed, and the right to apply in writing to the selectmen or assessors for an abatement of the tax assessed as provided under RSA 76:16. The department of revenue administration shall compute for each town and city the rates which are to appear on the tax bills and shall furnish the required information to the appropriate town or city.
II. The tax bill shall also contain a statement informing the taxpayer of the types of tax relief for which the taxpayer has the right to apply. The following statement shall be considered adequate:
"If you are elderly, disabled, blind, a veteran, or veteran's spouse, or are unable to pay taxes due to poverty or other good cause, you may be eligible for a tax exemption, credit, abatement, or deferral. For details and application information, contact (insert title of local assessing officials or office to which application should be made)."
This statement shall be prominent and legible, and may either be printed on the tax bill itself, or on a separate sheet of paper enclosed with the tax bill. A municipality may in its discretion choose to include more detailed information about the eligibility criteria for different forms of tax relief, provided, however, that the information in the above statement shall be considered a minimum.
III. A town or city may, by majority vote of its governing body, include information additional to that required under paragraphs I and II on the tax bill as a means of further educating the public relative to the laws regarding property taxes.
