Vehicle Strikes Guardrail in
Windham, Continues Travel into Nashua
submitted by Hudson Police Department
On March 3, at approximately 5:52 p.m., the Hudson Police Department received a call about a gray Toyota RAV4 traveling westbound on Route 111 that struck a guardrail in the area of the Hudson and Windham town line. The caller reported that the RAV4 struck the guardrail, and then continued traveling westbound through
Hudson. A short time later, Officer Cassandra Dabilis observed a gray Toyota RAV4, with damage to the front end of the vehicle, traveling southbound on Lowell Road. Officer Dabilis activated her emergency lights and siren to initiate a motor vehicle stop. However, the driver of the RAV4 refused to stop and continued traveling at a slow rate of speed southbound on Lowell Road, then westbound onto the Sagamore Bridge, and then onto the on-ramp for Route 3 southbound in Nashua. It was in this area that the Toyota RAV4 came to a stop in the roadway. The driver of the RAV4 was the lone occupant of the motor vehicle and she was identified as Robyn Chapman, 54, of Billerica, MA. Subsequently, Chapman was taken into custody, without incident, and charged with Aggravated DWI, Disobeying a Police Officer, Transportation of Drugs, and Suspended Drivers License. Additional investigation revealed that Chapman struck the guardrail in Windham, and she is being investigated by Windham police for conduct after an accident. Chapman was held on $1,000 cash bail, and was
scheduled to appear at Nashua District Court on March 4.
Car Hits Utility Pole; DWI Arrest Made
submitted by the Litchfield Police Department
On March 23 at approximately 1:44 a.m.,
Litchfield police responded to a single-vehicle crash in the area of 87 Charles Bancroft Highway, in which a vehicle had struck a utility pole. Nicholas Lavoie, 28, of Crown Street in Nashua, was traveling northbound in a 1999 black Honda Civic when he left the roadway and struck a utility pole, causing the vehicle to roll over onto its roof. Emergency personnel used the “Jaws of Life” to extricate Lavoie

The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but it appears as though alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. Lavoie was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated, Subsequent Offense.

As Camacho stopped, a green 2008 Mitsubishi Galant, driven by Brittani Lebel, 18, of Hudson, was behind Camacho and rear-ended his vehicle. This caused Camacho’s vehicle to rear-end Piec’s

by the NH Racing and Charitable Gaming Commission and the sale of lottery tickets as permitted by the NH Lottery Commission. The Gambling Winnings Tax is assessed on any and all gambling winnings received in the calendar year. Since the law only became effective on July 1, 2009, for calendar year 2009, taxpayers will only have to report and pay tax on gambling winnings constructively received on and between July 1, 2009, and December 31, 2009. The Form DP- 300, Gambling Winnings Tax Return, and payment must be filed on or before April 15. Unlike other state taxes, there is no automatic extension for the Gambling Winnings Tax. A taxpayer, however, may request a limited extension to file a return by submitting Form DP-300 EXT no later than April 15, accompanied by 100 percent of the tax determined to be due and a brief explanation of good cause as to why an extension is necessary.
Extension to File is Not an Extension to Pay
For those who aren’t ready to file
their Business Tax or Interest and Dividends Tax return, an automatic, seven-month extension to file the return will be granted, provided that 100 percent of the tax due has been paid by April 15. If an additional payment is necessary in order to have paid 100 percent of the taxes determined to be due, payments may be filed with Form DP-59-A, Extension Application for Interest and Dividends Tax or Form BT-EXT, Payment Form and Application for 7 Month Extension of Time to File Business Tax Return.
e-File New Hampshire
As always, taxpayers have the option
to pay their business taxes online. Interest and Dividends Tax and Meals and Rentals Tax returns and payments can also be made using our online e- file system. For those who aren’t ready to file their return, extension payments of 100 percent of the tax due can be made online until midnight of the 15th to receive an automatic, seven-month extension to file their return. Payments may be warehoused for up to a year in advance. Visit the State’s Website
