2020-2021 New Hampshire Tax Collectors’ Association
President’s Message

September, 2020

Welcome to the New Hampshire Tax Collector’s Association webpage. This website has a wealth of information and resources for the tax collectors and citizens across the state so please utilize it. Early taxation in New Hampshire can be traced back to 1623 using the Provincial Tax System. Collection of Taxes today across the state are collected from its residents in 10 counties, 234 cities and towns and 25 unincorporated places. The Tax Collectors Association has been in existence since 1938.

This year marks the 82nd Anniversary of the New Hampshire Tax Collectors Association, a milestone we are proud to reach. The Association has been and remains a model to other states and often sets us apart. Our core purpose is to keep our state’s tax collectors supplied with the necessary knowledge and tools needed for the successful execution of their offices.

The association is comprised of several committees: Education, Legislative, Auditing, Nominating, Convention, Financial and Certification. Professional Certification takes four years and the Association has some scholarships available for those in need. In addition, all counties have two appointed coordinators who hold annual educational meetings in their area. The Association endeavors to encourage and make available

useful information to every state tax collector. Most importantly we strive to help New Hampshire tax collectors achieve excellence in their jobs.

In addition, the Association sponsors the New Tax Collectors Workshop at the Department of Revenue Administration in March, the Regional Tax Collectors Meetings in April, Professional Certification in August, and our Annual Conference in the Fall.

Every day is different in this profession and 2020 has been a very trying year for all of us. Ever changing legislation often directly affects the execution of our duties. New Hampshire tax collectors are charged with always “faithfully and impartially discharging our duties according to the best of our abilities and agreeably to the rules and regulations of the State of NH”. The Association through its committees, has the same end goal – to continually educate and provide every tax collector with the guidance and support needed to fulfill their duties. If you are new please feel free to reach out to one of these board members. We are here to help each other out.

I am very honored to serve as your President for the next year. The steadfast support of my fellow tax collectors, the Executive Board, my friends and family have played an important role in my accomplishing this honor.

New Hampshire is a unique and special state in which to live, work and play.

Respectfully,

Theresa L. Briand, CTC Town of Litchfield
