Here you go (town tax rates): www.snhhome.com/2006NHTaxRates.pdf (broken link)

Towns with the lowest taxes *probably* will have the least amount of services

(by the way, great username...)

The town, which consistently comes in with one of the lowest tax rates throughout the years, is Benton NH. No schools, No police dept., no fire dept., no trash pick up and no stores. The town has 17 miles of roads and most are maintained by the state. Check it out. It's one of those places where locals say "you can't get there from here". But, if it's basic you want, you can't get much closer.

Try this link as well:

NH Community Profiles (http://www.nhes.state.nh.us/elmi/communpro.htm - broken link)

This will give tax info (not always up to date), and it will also list services and other tidbits of info.

A low tax rate often does translate to a low amount of services but it can also translate to an unaffordable community. Many low rate towns have property valuations that are significantly higher than surrounding, higher rate towns. Something to consider.

Hebron would be my choice for one of the best low rate towns. Borders Newfound lake, small population (600, plus or minus) minimal services, but a nice, quaint NH town.

exactly what I would have said. A low tax rate does not necessarily mean an affordable home.
