2017 Revalued/Reassessed MunicipalitiesNovember 30, 2016

If a town where you pay real estate taxes is undergoing a revaluation or reassessment, it is particularly important to review whether or not a real estate tax appeal should be filed this year.

Even if your assessment was not substantially increased, your tax liability may increase dramatically, because many towns are increasing their effective tax rates while performing revaluations or reassessments that lower overall assessments. The new higher taxes may make the assessment excessive even if it was not substantially increased.  The full impact of the reassessment will not be known until the new tax rate is established later in 2017 and at that time it will be too late to file an appeal.  A list of towns currently scheduled for a revaluation/reassessment in 2017 is below.

The 2017 filing deadline for tax appeals in revalued or reassessed towns is May 1, 2017.  For all other towns (outside of Monmouth County which is January 15th), the filing deadline is April 1, 2017.  Contact us if you have any questions about the tax appeal process in general or your particular property.
