What is an abatement?

An abatement is a form of appeal of your property's assessment if you feel you are being unfairly assessed. Under RSA 76:16, municipalities may abate taxes and interest accrued on such tax "for good cause shown". The taxpayer has the burden to prove their property was unfairly assessed compared to similar properties in town as of April 1st for that year's tax bill.
