The state Department of Revenue Administration released 2012 tax rates earlier this month. Nashua's tax rate is set at $21.49, up 2.38 percent, over last year's rate of $20.97.
That means if your home is assessed at $250,000, your property tax will increase by about $130, according to the city's Chief Assessor, Angelo Marino.
He explained that the DRA sets the tax rate based on all revenue sources submitted by the city.
Nashua by the numbers:
Town Valuation: $8,497,876,721
Town Tax: 8.56
Local Education Tax: 9.39
State Education Tax: 2.43
County Tax: 1.11
Total Tax: 21.49
Date Set: Nov 2, 2012
Marino said tax bills would be sent this week and residents would have 30 days to pay without interest.
