    I live in NH and noticed the homeschool info is incorrect. The laws have changed but are not reflected in this. Yearly letters of intent are no longer required and evaluations no longer need to be submitted. Also, as someone who tries to homestead, I will add a con, as its huge for us, and the main reason we are leaving the state. It is very expensive here! Property taxes are extremely high so we are currently stuck on a small lot within city limits because we cannot afford land more favorable for homesteading. We may have no sales tax, less taxes in general, but the property tax MORE than makes up for it! We left a very high tax state to come here, thinking it would be better. For us, it has not been. Financially, we will do much better in the state we are moving to. Just things to consider….

    Hello, my name is Curt. My wife and I recently purchased land in nh 7.3 acres for 27000 only 1000 a year in taxes. I suppose it depends where you are in nh. The southern part of the state is very expensive. I am on the Vermont border near lake sunapee, Unity NH.
