Eligibility and Enrollment in New Hampshire's Current Use Taxation Program

Cover of the resource

In New Hampshire, the current use program is a form of preferential taxation used to encourage private landowners to keep medium and large parcels of land in their traditional use, preserving open space and the rural character of the state. 

This study, conducted in 1994 and 1995, examines current use around the state, and provides information on the following questions: 

  • Of the land eligible for current use, waht percentage is actually enrolled?
  • How would the amount of land eligible for and enrolled in current use change if the minimum acreage requirement was lowered to five acres?
  • How would the amount of land eligible for and enrolled in current use change if the minimum acreage requirement was raised to twenty acres?
