Exemptions & Credits

The Town of Deerfield has adopted several exemptions and credits for the benefit of eligible residents.  Among them are the Veterans' Tax Credit, the All Veteran’s Tax Credit, the Tax Credit for Service-Connected Total Disability (VA documentation required) and corresponding credits for Veterans' surviving spouses.  One-half of the Veteran’s Tax Credit will be reflected in the first half tax bill, with the remaining credit to be applied to the final tax liability.  Exemptions, which are reductions to the assessed valuation of the primary residence, are offered based upon the marital status and age of eligible applicants and have specific income and asset limitations.  Please see the following pages for an overview of the above exemptions and credits and their specific requirements.  Deerfield also offers an exemption for Legally Blind individuals.

Applications for the Low & Moderate Tax Relief are submitted directly to the State of New Hampshire. Submissions should be postmarked by June 30th.
