DERRY — Tax bills are in the mail.
Town Administrator John Anderson announced bills are en route to Derry residents and are due back by July 1.
This bill represents the first of two for the 2011 tax year. The final tax bill will be mailed in the fall once the 2011 tax rate is set by the state's Department of Revenue Administration. The final bill will be due by Dec. 1.
Payments not made by the due date are subject to interest at 12 percent per annum.
Bills are computed using a taxpayer's assessed valuation multiplied by half of the 2010 tax rate. Derry's tax rate for 2010 was $28.48 per $1,000 of assessed valuation.
The DRA can help taxpayers with its program to assist low- and moderate-income homeowners. A state-run property tax relief program is available for those qualifying for some tax relief.
Filing instructions and program information is available by calling DRA at 271-2192 or visit derry-nh.org/Pages/DerryNH_Assessor/links
Program information is also available through the tax collector and assessor's office at the municipal center.
The last day to file an application for tax relief for the 2010 tax year is June 30, 2011.
Contact assessor David Gomez at 432-6104 for information on the town's assessing process. Call the Tax Collector's Office at 432-6106 if you do not receive a tax bill, or for additional information.
