PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT APPEAL PROCESS

 

In 2018 the Alternative Real Property Assessment Calendar (P.L. 2018, C.94) was signed into law for New Jersey by Governor Murphy.  After careful consideration, the Alternative Real Property Assessment Calendar was adopted by the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Burlington via Resolution #2020-00149 on April 9, 2020. 

 

The implementation will begin October 1, 2020.  This change will benefit property owners and municipalities by completing the appeal process before tax bills are generated in 2021 and each year subsequently.

 

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING DATE CHANGES:

PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT NOTIFICATION POSTCARDS WERE PREVIOUSLY MAILED ON OR BEFORE FEBRUARY 1ST AND NOW WILL BE MAILED ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 15TH.

 

THE DEADLINE TO FILE AN APPEAL OF YOUR PROPERTY ASSESSMENT WAS PREVIOUSLY APRIL 1ST AND WILL NOW BE JANUARY 15TH EACH YEAR, STARTING IN 2021.

 

 

**The tax appeal deadline for 2020 was extended due to the COVID-19 pandemic to 30 days after the Governor lifts or the State of Emergency ends.
