Tax Assessor

The mission of the Assessor’s office is to maintain a fair and equitable tax base for the community based on sound assessment practices. Our plan is to treat all property types and owners impartially so as to distribute the tax burden equitably.

The Assessor is responsible for identifying and placing a value on every parcel of land within the confines of the Borough’s borders.

The Assessor is a quasi-judicial position whose statutory authority is based in the New Jersey constitution. Although an employee of the municipality, the Assessor works under the direction of the Middlesex County Board of Taxation.

ASSESSMENT NOTIFICATION/APPEAL
In February of each year, “Assessment Notification Postcards” are mailed to each property owner as outlined in N.J.S.A. 54:4-38.1. The postcard notification lists the current year’s assessment as well as the process and deadline for filing an appeal. Please keep in mind that property owners cannot appeal the amount of taxes they pay, but rather the assessment of the property. Tax Appeals must be filed with the Middlesex County Board of Taxation on or before April 1st of the tax year in question.
