Update:  The 2013 Boat Decals are now available at the Gilford Town Hall, Town Clerk – Tax Collector’s Office for registering your boat.  We are excited to announce that the Gilford Town Clerk – Tax Collector’s office has gone online this week with the State DMV for processing boat registrations! Processing registrations online with the state will make the transaction(s) quicker and more efficient for citizens.  We hope to offer this as an online service to our citizens in the near future through the town’s website but unfortunately that part of the module is not available at this time.

By registering your boat locally you will add tax dollars to the general fund and also support NH Marine Patrol as funds are forwarded from the Town to the State for each registration on a weekly basis.  If you choose to use the prepaid mailer provided and send your registration directly to the State of NH-DMV, or bring in person to a State DMV agency (including Marine Patrol) for processing the State does not forward any funds to the local towns and cities. 

The Town Clerk – Tax Collector’s Office is able to process your registration(s) through the mail or in person for your convenience.  A $5.00 agent fee is required to be added to each registration completed by an agent.  If you choose not to pay the $5.00 agent fee, you can pay the town boat tax on the registration and with a receipt you can forward to the State DMV with no additional charges.

The boat tax collected and deposited into the general fund is helping to manage, conserve and restore Gilford’s natural resources. I encourage you to process your boat at my office or one of Gilford’s Boat Agents (Gator, Inc., Irwin Marine at Mountain View Yacht Club, or Silver Sands Marina).  

The Town Clerk – Tax Collector’s Office hours are Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. & Thursdays 8.00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.  Please bring in your renewal form(s) that were mailed to you from the State of NH.  The owner of the boat must sign the Registration(s).  Telephone (603) 527-4713 or email if you have any questions.
