New Hampshire Taxation
Tax records vary in content. They may include the name and residence of the taxpayer, description of real estate or personal property, number of males over 21, and number of school children and farm animals. They are usually arranged by date and locality, and they are not normally indexed. Tax records can be used in place of missing land and census records to locate a person’s residence.
