Lower your property taxes – file an appeal by April 1, 2013

The April 1 deadline to appeal your property tax assessment is approaching! If your home is worth less now than it was when you bought it, or if you live in a town that conducted recent revaluations, you may be paying more in property taxes than you should be. 

Every year, in either late January or early February, tax assessors are required to mail to each property owner in New Jersey an annual tax assessment notice. It’s typically printed on a small green card and it simply states your home’s assessed value for both the land and any improvements. The number on the green card is calculated as of October 1 of the pre-tax year. So, for example, the tax assessment date for 2013 is October 1, 2002.

It is not uncommon for a home to be over assessed and an over assessment can result in you paying higher property taxes than you should be.
