Property Assessments
Yearly Assessment Notices will be sent out by the 1st of February of the current year and will list the prior year taxes. Information about the Appeal Process will appear on the back of the notice.

The deadline for filing a tax appeal is April 1st. Appeals are filed in triplicate with the County Tax Board, Municipal Clerk and Tax Assessor. All municipal charges must be current to be eligible for a hearing before the Board.

The tax rate is per $100 of assessed value. Multiply the assessment by the tax rate to arrive at the amount of property taxes owed.

Property Tax Deductions
Property tax deductions are available to certain New Jersey residents.

Required Documentation:
For claim by veteran: Service record, DD214, and Identification (Driver License, Voter Registration)

For claim by surviving spouse of a veteran or service person: The veteran’s death certificate and proof of the New Jersey residency at time of death.
