Why would my property assessment be higher than the current market value of my property?

Assessments are not adjusted on a yearly basis as market values change. The NH Department of Revenue Assessment (DRA) determines the town's level of assessment every year, which assists us in determining how the town's assessments relate to actual selling prices.
