If you are buying a specific property, find out what the actual taxes are for a full year and ask questions about the assessment. Every state assesses differently and this may avoid surprises after you move in. The tax year in the State of NH runs from April 1 to March 31. Fremont bills twice per year, with taxes due at July 1 and December 1 annually. Contact the Selectmen's Office for all assessing information.
Many banks and mortgage companies automatically send in payments from escrows. You should contact your lender to find out if your mortgage is on an automatic payment list. This could avoid a double payment.
