Your current property assessment may not reflect the current market value. How do you know if your assessment is fair and correct? By law, the current assessment is assumed to be correct. As the taxpayer, you, or an attorney must prove that the assessed value of your property “is unreasonable compared to a market value standard” to obtain a change to your assessment.
Property Taxes are determined by your town’s budgeting process. Therefore the amount of your real estate taxes are not appealable. However, the total of your real estate assessment may be appealed. A reduction in your assessment will result in lower property taxes.
A public hearing at the County Board of Taxation may be required. As the taxpayer, you are required to be present at the hearing or be represented by an attorney admitted to practice in the State of New Jersey. Business entities, other than sole proprietorships, must be represented by an attorney.
