The property tax bill either breaks down into municipal/county/school/state school sections or in some places, there is no tax bill because there are no property taxes.Are there any places where property taxes are fully directed to the county government , with none going to state government?
The state school section doesn't go to the state. A formula is used, and it is sent to school districts around the state. The state government controls the formula. Sen. Shaheen put this in place when she was the governor of NH. She tried to put a sales tax in place, people told her WTF, so she did this instead. It allows the NH state government to pretend that it pays for a huge section of the government k-12 schools, when it is actually local property taxes, raised by local governments, and spent by local governments.
To answer your question, no property tax money goes to the state. As for the county government, that's typically the smallest section of the property tax bill. The counties do very little so they need very little money to operate. The NH system is very local when it comes to taxes and spending. Towns and cities are where the purse strings are at. And in towns, the voters control the purse strings because they literally control how much the town spends/taxes, unlike almost every other state.
