There are plenty of reasons not to move to NH. The commute would kill us. But the NH property tax issue shouldn't be one of them.Unfortunately moving from MA is not going to happen soon. I dream about moving to NH, but with my income coming from MA, the NH property taxes on top of MA income tax would be burdensome.
Tax rates in NH vary greatly, and the property values are far lower in NH than in MA. I'm paying more than $7,000 per year for a 1500 square foot ranch house in MA. I suspect I could buy a similar property in NH for a lot less, and pay similar (or less) real estate taxes.
