Democrat Wants to Rid City of Elderly for More Property Tax Cash from Citizens

Manchester Alderman Christopher Herbert, a Democrat who is also a state representative, believes elderly people who own a home but can’t pay their property taxes are privileged.

He feels a program should exist that forces them out if they don’t pay up.

At a joint meeting on education in Manchester on May 24, Herbert opined:

“I’ve got an 85-year-old woman that lives across the street, and, and she won’t give up her house, she’s sitting on $350,000 dollars and she can’t afford it anymore and you’re saying (pointing to Alderwoman Shaw) give her a tax credit….NO, we should have a program that GETS HER OUT OF THE HOUSE….. I mean, we need to get new people to come in and, and, ‘occupy’ those houses. We can’t be run by the elderly in a city…that, that, that’s foolishness.”

New Hampshire is a great state, but it has a terrible tax policy.

New Hampshire prides itself on its clean, rural lifestyle and having no state income tax and no sales tax. However, the cost of local government and those municipal services have to be paid somehow.

The main way to fund that is the local property tax. In fact, New Hampshire boasts some of the highest property taxes in the nation.

“New Hampshire is known as a low-tax state. But while the state has no personal income tax and no sales tax, it has the third highest property tax rate of any U.S. state, with an average effective rate of 2.05 percent,” according to Smart Asset.

In New Hampshire, if your home value assessment is $250,000, your tax bill is $5,513. By comparison, you’d be paying $5,095 for the same home in affluent Connecticut, $3,920 in liberal Massachusetts based on the Smart Asset tax calculator.
